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.

For the 2nd time since owning this car it starts intermittently cutting off while driving , or while idling . sometimes it will resart right away , other times it may be hours , or not at all eventually . After some major research on my part I discovered TSB's indicating a problem with the crankshaft position sensor . Mechanic finally checked what I told him , replaced CRPS, and car has been fine for almost 3 yrs. Now it's doing it again, it masks itself as possible problem with Alternator, starter, even oxygen sensor, or vacuum leak . Car in shop right now and mechanic is totally stumped . Can anyone shed any light on why this keeps happening ?
