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've seen this a lot while searching online. I've never seen a fix though. Essentially setting the cruise control at 35 will cause the engine to stall. Shifting into neutral then turning the key again fires it right back up.

I've also noticed slow throttle response off the line and lunges from a dead stop. Also little to know power on slight speed increases. It's like the sensors don't notice the throttle repositioning. Possible TPS, ECU, Throttle body, Trans issue... who knows... ford sure doesn't.
