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.

The car had a what appeared to be a minor oil burning problem. now it is constant, plugs and oil changed and man you can not see the car behind you. and the suction at the oil filler cap is unbelieveable. do I have a bad pcv valve? what is it? the car has plenty of cruising power.
