NHTSA. National Hiway Traffic Safety Administration. Check their website. Service bulletins are not always listed for all models. Example: Early Explorers have a fire problem. The mirror switch shorts and catches the truck on fire. They are suspected of having burned down a couple of buildings.

There is a service bulletin on this problem, but it only pertains to 4 doors. When my 2 door burned, no service bulletins could be found for the 2 door even tho it is the same switch/circuit. shady

All recalls and TSB's MUST be reported to the NHTSA if it applies to vehicles in the US market. However the full text of the TSB does not have to be reported as it is proprietary information.

this sounds like my 99 3.0 ranger. it will start and run fine 1 day then it will just crank and crank the next... it will run for about a week or so with no probs then it will just start missing then die like it is running out of fuel. so did the flex fuel sensor solve the problem

I am amazed.
After all this I can not seem to be able to come to my senses.
I am going berzerk!
He mentioned black smoke coming out of the tail pipe.
How come nobody has suggested him to check for the fuel pressure just in case his fuel filter / pressure regulator unit is bad?
So much for a bunch of f***ing gear heads.
By the way... How much is this thing cost in Canada?
Here is like $32.00 Us Dollars.

Default Flex Fuel Probles/ Solution

Hey guys been readin yer posts and having the same issue myself figured i'd send yall a little web site that helped me out BIG time. The product is called a flex fuel replicator and it basically does away with the E85 and you will no longer be able to run it WITHOUT having to pay out the ass for the flex fuel sensor. The replicator for the ford is priced at 150 bucks brand new straight from there web site. below is the website yall can visit and read what it does and maby order your own..
