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.

There is a hose that connects to the coolant reservoir, the water pump, and another to join to the radiator hose. The hose was deteriorating so it would leak the coolant, and therefore the car would run hot. I went to the local auto part stores they didn't have it, one of the stores had to call ford to see how I could get the part. Ford said it's a dealer part only, the company said they would charge me over $300 to export it in.....hah! I went to an export company that brought it in for $240. I received the part within a week and had it installed the next day...
