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.

Oil change place tells me that there's a fairly significant oil leak on my Blazer. Had it inspected by a service shop who determined the oil filter adapter hoses were leaking. From what I hear, the aluminum crimps in the adapter break from thermal cycling and then you get a leak. Replacing the lines involves slightly jacking up the engine to gain sufficient clearance to remove/install the hoses. I've had it replaced once and it's already leaking again (as of 10/23/14.)
