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.

Can't figure out where all the antifreeze is going. It's been on a lift and checked by a mechanic and he can't figure it out either. There's a leak some where,there's no water in the oil , thats been checked. There is absolutely no sign of a leak anywhere. Going to check the radiator cap next, but every other day having to put fluid back in the holding tank for antifreeze is a real pain in the ass. You call the dealership they want to charge an arm an a leg just to look at it, even when you tell them you can do it yourself they won't give you a straight answer because they want you to bring the car in so you get bent over and get in the arse nice and dry.

Is there anybody that might have a clue to this problem,HELP!!!!!PLEASE!!!!!!
