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.

Car would not idle after starting. Thank god it happened in driveway. Towed to dealer, and dealer replaced iac valve, and cleaned fuel system. Car had 37974 miles on it. Purchased used on 07/03/03, was certified as used car, 33750 miles. Noticed intermittent turn signal flashing when purchased. Changed bulbs, no improvement. Shouldn't a safety recall be issued instead of a tsb on the idle problem?

Grand Marquis

For about a month, been having problems with 2001 Mercury marquis. It would start, die, start die, etc. The problem became worst and I took it for service. Was told that the fuel injectors were dirty and that the injector motor was not working correctly. That the fuel injector should have been cleaned at 30,000 miles. I said that it was not listed in my service manual. The service manager knew that but again stated that it should have been done at 30,000 miles. About 15 minues later anotehr Mercury marquis came in with the same problem. The next day at work I learned that a friend was having the same problem with her Mercury marquis. So did Ford forget to list fuel injector cleaning in the service manual?
