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.

Camaro RS

Ok i got this 97 camaro 3.8L and it runs really rough (no acceleration or power). I've replaced the catalytic converter, spark plugs, wires, and the ignition coil and still have problems. I would like to know if somebody has gone through the same problem and what was wrong with the car. I really would like to fix it.

Camaro Z28

Chugging when giving it gas. i've had the plugs/plugwires, pcv valve, fuel filter, emissions canister, fuel injectors cleaned and nothing has fixed the problem...... the only thing left is the oxygen sensors and i have four of them and it will run me another 500 dollars just to repair that. i've already spent 550. on the repairs above. the car is a piece of junk or the repair shops i've been dealing with can't figure out what's causing the "evap system' error code to come up on my computer.
