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.

Sable LS 3.0L V6 12-valve

  • Automatic transmission
  • 166,000 miles

Have an '00 Mercury Sable 12-Valve Vulcan V6 - Engine Light is on, throwing codes P1400 P0301 P0302 P0306, I know 3 cylinders are misfiring 1,2,&6. The engine light will also flash sometimes. Idles very rough, and oil light is on at idle. Runs rough at low speeds. Oil light goes away and runs better at higher speeds, only to have the problem start again when slowing down. Also, orange slime in air filter, comes back when i clean it or change it. any help would be appreciated, i am at a loss what is wrong.
