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.

Just adding another complaint with my mountaineer. On top of the O/D light flashing, I also have the timing chain rattle at 2500 RPM. Not sure if this is a must to fix or not. I just know the result if the chain goes. It will end up in the junk yard, since its not worth the $4000 engine repair. Most are saying a $1500 repair for the chain (worth only $65)

Good luck Ford owners, you will need it!
