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.

well, i took my truck to the dealer about noise in engine. i left it. i also had some problems with power windows,they called and said the window was fixed but would like to keep my truck another day about ticking noise.i called the next day and they i needed a new head.they would order it but i could take the truck until the head comes in i said ok.2 days later i called they said the head was in so,i dropped my thuck off.the next day they called and said i needed a new cam and lifters.they replaced everything and so far everything is ok.i got on the internet and found that this is not uncommon in this engine and i should ask for extended when i asked the dealer about it he said he would only warranty the work they did for far so good!

i was wondering if alot of other people are having the same problem? my truck now has about 47,000 miles now and no problems, so far.
