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.

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis. Consumer stated faulty thermostat the consumer stated when the mechanic attempted to replace the thermostat, problems were encountered. The thermostat housing bolts would not readily unscrew. The consumer was informed that if more force was exerted, the plastic-like intake manifold through which the bolts fastened, would crack/break and require a very expensive intake manifold replacement. The consumer decided to wait on the repair and contacted three local Ford dealerships for second opinions. All three informed the consumer they would be careful, but they could not guarantee him that they would not crack the intake manifold in attempting to replace the thermostat. Updated 08/10/10.
