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.

ck engine, service stabilitrak, engine power reduced

On two occasions in the same week, as soon as I start driving, my truck will lose power. The check engine and service stabilitrak lights come on along with the message "engine power reduced." I have had to coast into a parking space and turn the ignition off for a few minutes. When I start it back up, the check engine light stays on. I've read about others having the same problem with several possible remedies but no definite fix. There seems to be more cases of low oil pressure in the engine. I always get regular oil changes and currently my oil life is at 62% but I'm going to get the oil changed again to make sure synthetic oil is used and see what info the dealership can provide on this issue. I will inquire about replacing the oil pump with a high pressure version...I'll update accordingly.
