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.

problem #2

Feb 152011

Regal LS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


Had to replace the power steering pump. Not a big deal. But now, found out the power steering was messing up again. Called a repair shop and they told me to check the power steering fluid before bringing it down there. Checked and it was low. Put some Lucas in there and haven't had any problems in a month, but I'm still keeping my eye on it because I know it was leaking from the Rack and Pinion (will cost $300 to replace) and the Lucas says it will even fix those leaks, but doesn't seem likely even for Lucas.

Regal Supercharged V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

Poor design....Power steering pump "buried" lower right side of cowling....Owner cannot access to check fluid level...Pump shaft seal failed due to low fluid level....First hint of problem was hard steering....Evidently the folks at "qick" oil change facilities never checked fluid level ....NOTE: Interesting...owners manual was of no help when I tried to finf pump filler cap....It pictured the cap, but the location apparently was "generic" and did not pertain to this particular engine.....See more problems this vehicle...
