If our cars are registered on that Ford site, shouldn't they tell us about these issues?

The Ford site tells you nothing about TSB's, only recall's.

A few of these things are issues I had that my dealer told me they never heard of. I am going in next week with the TSB #'s and asking why I could find them and they couldn't.

This article supersedes TSB 01-15-6 to update the vehicle model years and Service Procedure.

ISSUE
The majority of repeat heater core leaks are due to high flow rate or use of poor quality coolant. However, electrolysis should also be checked, especially when repeat repairs have occurred.

ACTION
If the heater core is leaking, review the location of the leakage and check the condition of the coolant.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

1. Review the location of the leakage and check the condition of the coolant:

a. If leaks are found on the inlet (or outlet) tubes entering / exiting the heater core, it is most likely due to due to high flow rate - replace the heater core and install a restrictor in the heater hose closest to the engine block, reference Workshop Manual, Section 412.

b. If leaks are found in the body of the heater core itself, and does not appear to be the result of physical damage like contact or puncture, check the coolant for possible electrolysis.



Testing For Electrolysis

Check for voltage in the cooling system by touching the negative contact of a voltmeter to the battery ground or a known good ground and suspend the positive lead in the coolant, making sure it is in contact with the coolant but not touching any metal part of the radiator or cooling system. Both AC and DC voltages must be checked. Vehicles normally have DC voltages; however, a faulty engine block heater or faulty diode in the alternator can produce AC voltages. It is understood that coolant is lost due to heater core failure but try to obtain a voltage reading on the old coolant in the engine block before addition to or replacement of. To keep more coolant from exiting the heater core clamp off heater core lines and measure coolant in the engine block. Try not to dilute the original coolant with new coolant during testing if possible.

1. Determine whether coolant condition is acceptable.

a. Remove both cables from the battery and ensure they do not contact each other or the vehicle.

b. Touch negative lead of voltmeter to engine ground and positive lead in the coolant.


NOTE POSITIVE TEST PROBE IS IN THE COOLANT FOR TESTING.

c. Check the voltage in the cooling system. If less than or equal to 0.4 volts (V) OK, reconnect battery cables and proceed to Step 2.

d. If greater than 0.4 V, flush cooling system thoroughly.

e. Recheck voltage less than or equal to 0.4 V.

f. Reconnect battery cables.

g. Refill the system with appropriate Motorcraft® engine coolant.

2. Check for loose or missing grounds at static conditions.

a. Turn off all accessories. Turn ignition on but do not start engine.

b. Test with ground probe to battery ground, engine ground, and vehicle ground sequentially.

c. Voltage less than or equal to 0.4 V on all grounds OK.

d. Any one greater than 0.4 V, check and clean ground cable connections.

e. Check accessories without using the on off switch on the vehicle instrument panel, use a jumper wire to ground.

f. Plug in engine block heater, if equipped, and test.

g. Recheck voltage less than or equal to 0.4 V.

h. Unplug engine block heater, if equipped.


3. Check for loose, missing, or inadequate grounds.

a. Test with ground probe to battery ground, engine ground, and vehicle ground sequentially.

b. Crank engine but do not start.

c. Monitor voltage while cranking. less than or equal to 0.4 V OK

d. If greater than 0.4 V, ground or repair starter.

e. Start engine and run at about 2000 rpm.

f. Turn on all accessories including those customer only uses occasionally such as CB radio, cell phone, etc.

g. Test with ground probe to battery ground, engine ground, and vehicle ground sequentially.

h. Voltage less than or equal to 0.4 V OK

i. If greater than 0.4 V, turn off one item at a time until V drops to less than or equal to 0.4 V. Repair ground to the accessory just identified.

j. Recheck voltage less than or equal to 0.4 V

k. Turn the DVOM to AC volts.

l. Check for ANY AC voltage greater than 0.4.

m. If any AC voltage is present then try turning off each accessory one at a time including blower motor and any fan motors.

n. If AC voltage is still present then shut engine off and remove B+ from the alternator and tape it up then retest.

o. If voltage drop is gradual to less than or equal to 0.4 V, the ground straps may simply be overloaded by added accessories. Test by using heavy gauge jumper to ground. If indicated, install heavier gauge ground strap(s) and recheck.


NOTE If vehicle is equipped with electric cooling fans, be sure they cycle during this testing and monitor voltage when they are on and when off.

CAUTION DO NOT GROUND HEATER CORE. IF THE HEATER CORE IS GROUNDED, YOU HAVE PROVIDED THE ELECTROLOSIS A PATH THROUGH THE HEATER CORE. THIS WOULD CAUSE THE HEATER CORE TO BECOME AN ANODE OR RECEIVER AND IT WOULD PROMOTE THE ELECTROLOSIS, OR ANY STRAY VOLTAGE TO USE THE COOLANT AS THE GROUND PATH.

4. Refill the engine cooling system, reference Workshop Manual, Section 303-03.

NOTE IF THE HEAT OUTPUT IS INSUFFICIENT, OR THE ENGINE DOES NOT REACH NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURES, VERIFY PROPER THERMOSTAT OPERATION AND REPEAT PROCEDURE IF REQUIRED.

WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under Provisions Of New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage

This is really handy to see them all listed out numerically like this. I'd like to see this one: 07-1-7 01/09/2007 MERCON® ATF REPLACED BY MERCON® V AS A SERVICE FLUID FOR SOME POWER STEERING SYSTEMS. I'd heard some chatter about using Mercon V in the Gen 3 power steering systems as well. Thanks for any info you can provide.

I read this one...all it states is that they are going to stop making ATF and therefore all ATF power steering applications should now use Mercon V.

The 07's have many of the same TSBs as the 06 models.

06-21-19 OCT 06 A/C - Heater Core Electrolysis/Leakage
06-21-17 OCT 06 Body - Water Leaks Around Dome Lamp/Headliner
06-21-16 OCT 06 Body - Water Noise From Doors
06-21-6 OCT 06 Interior - Front Seat Manual Lumbar Support Inoperative
06-19-14 OCT 06 Starting System- No Crank Condition
06-18-15 SEP 06 Ignition System - System Diagnosis
06-17-13 SEP 06 Engine Controls - Surge/Hesitation/T/C Cycling/A/C Perf.
06-17-10 SEP 06 Fuel System - Erratic Fuel Gauge/MIL ON/DTC P0463

For future reference, the title and brief description is available on multiple sites (http://autopedia.com/html/NHTSAtsb.html and http://www.alldata.com/TSB/). You have to pay for full access to these....or you can go to the Motorcraft site and pay $10 for a 3 day access and download for all of your Ford vehicles.
