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.

I had what seems to be a simple coolant leak but it turned out to be the plastic intake manifold cracked. Putting a plastic part on top of a motor seems to me a failure of engineering on the part of Ford. I did not receive any call back for this part. I did some searching on the web and found that many Ford owners had the same problem. I plan to call Ford company on Monday. Do you have any info for me on this subject. Thank you.

The contact owns a 2002 Buick rendezvous. The contact started the ignition and the temperature gauge displayed a hot level reading with the illumination of the coolant warning indicator. The engine began to overheat. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where they replaced the head gasket. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 96,000.

Intake manifold cracked, needed replacement. This is a plastic component which is not designed for cold weather climates. This is the second time (second car) that this has happened to.
