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.

The failure of the throttle body fortunately occurred in the driveway of a vacation home in chandler, Arizona. I was able to have the car towed to the nearest Ford dealership where the part was replaced. I hate to think what could have happened if we were in a traffic situation when the failure took place. Even though the engine will still run at an idle, the accelerator will not respond enough to move the vehicle forward or backward. Ford needs to recognize the failure of this part as a life threatening matter and issue a recall of all models affected.

After I replaced the original battery, I started the engine. I was unable to accelerate above 750 R.P.M. which is the approximate idle speed of the car. While in gear, I was unable to move forward or back due to lack of power. I had the car towed to the nearest Ford dealer in chandler, AZ. They diagnosed the problem as failure of the throttle body. After replacement, the car is operating normal, although it has only been four days since the service was performed. I do not trust it anymore.

While pulling out of a parking lot into the street, the electronic throttle body failed, putting the car into a "safe mode" with extremely limited power. Was able to use reverse to move car back into parking lot. I know that this exact issue (loss of power due to electronic throttle body failure) has caused a recall for some Ford and Mercury models, including the Milan, but it does not yet include my car's model year. From my experience, the recall should be expanded.
