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

  • 62,800 miles


On 6/1/14 I was driving South on SR44 in Ohio near lake punderson and following a farmer driving a farm tractor.when I got a chance to pass him I accelerated to kick in the passing gear and when I cleared him and left off the throttle it did not respond instead it continued at a high speed for a few seconds before letting off.I thought maybe the throttle got caught on my car mat. I very rarely push the throttle to the floor. Then yesterday 8/20/14 I was with my family traveling North on I-77 in akron Ohio and again I kicked the car into passing gear to pass and this time it accelerated and did not retract on my letting off. I slid the shifter into neutral and placed my foot under the pedal and lifted up and it came up but I thought I felt some resistance with the peddle.I continued on to my destination only a few miles to copley Ohio.I parked the car turning off the engine and slid the seat back and on my knees in the driveway I reached in with my right hand and pushed the peddle all the way in and let go of it and to my surprise it remained in the full throttle position. I then pulled the throttle back and felt resistance. I pushed it back in again and it stuck but came back with less resistance so I pumped it back and forth and got rid of the sticking problem.I then thought it may of developed some light rust on the linkage so I looked up under the dash and there is no place to lubricate that's when I realized I really had a problem and possibly a lot of people owning a similar of this writing I went out to the car in the garage and reached in and pushed the throttle to the floor and it came back nicely.a lot of people will not react as I did and shift into neutral.
