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.

I took the Van to Monro Muffler two weeks ago because the missfiring didn't stop, since they couldn't come up with a solution to fix that problem, I guess they wanted to get their moneys worth on that visit somehow. So they told my wife it's time the coolant system needed to be flushed, because it's all gummed up. So they flushed the system, put new coolant in and a super sealer, since it was losing coolant somewhere. Now the heater stopped working. I noticed before this was done a bubbling noice in the dashboard and I told a mechanic what was going on. He said coolant get trapped in the heater core, very common for this type of car, very anoying but not to worry about.

It's 12 degrees F out side, I need that heater!!!!!!!
