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've changed the thermostat and radiator fluid. The temperature gauge doesn't reach the middle either. I am in the u.s.s army in germany and it gets cold here. the vehicle sat for 8 months while I deployed to kosovo, would that have an impact. somebody mentioned a heater core, could that be it. thanks
