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.

Engine oil leaks from rear main seal through a drain passage between the engine and transmission onto the ground. Repair is replacement of rear main seal, which involves removing the drive shaft, transfer case, and transmission. I really don't feel like paying to have that much work done on a vehicle that isn't worth it.
