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.

When I give it gas there's a loud popping noise, however, the more I drive it at one time then it's not so bad. When I stop someplace for a few minutes though and drive it again the popping comes back just as bad. When I take my foot off the gas and ease back on the pedal it also doesn't do it as bad. The worst is when I'm going up a hill.
