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.

Mountaineer SUV V8

Engine will be running about 65mph, and it begins to feel like the engine is misfiring. Had a mechanic look at the problem, and found nothing wrong. I still feel it misfiring. Could it be the injectors?

Engine was tuned up about 6 mo. ago, and had 2 injectors replaced. The problem started a few weeks later.

Any ideas would be welcomed.

When I hit the gas it hesitates at times. If I turn of the overdrive it is not nearly as bad.
