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.

Leaking manifold gasket is more expensive to replace than car is worth (it had been vandalized). I tried the Blue Devil sealant and it has not worked. After googling the problem, I found this is a very common problem for these GM cars because the recommended coolant disintegrates the material the original manifold gasket was made of. I wish that there was a good, cheap fix - at least enough to get the car to last long enough to save up for another.
