Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Grand Marquis GS

Two weeks ago the intake manifold burst; it was replaced ( allegedly Ford will pay for it according to blogs ) but the coolant would 'disappear' and the car would overheat. The cap to the coolant reservoir was replaced, and now the "check engine" light stays on all the time. What do I do now?
