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.

IT'S PISSING ME OFF. I'M BETTER THAN AVERAGE HOME MECHANIC AND I CANT FIGURE IT OUT. THIS STARTED AFTER I GOT THE TIMING ADJUSTED. THE CAR RAN GREAT. THEN THE TIMING WAS FIXED. IT WAS ON TDC. THEN WE PUT IT ON FACTORY SETTING 6 DEG. THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. I REPLACED MAJORITY OF SENSORS, EXCEPT EGR, AND MAF. THE CAR RUNS GREAT COLD, PINS YOU IN THE SEAT, THEN WARMS UP, "CHOKES OUT" LIKE MMA. I DON'T HEAR A BACK FIRE, JUST STARTS TO STALL OUT, LET OFF GAS, OR PUT IN NUETRAL, ITS FINE. THIS HAPPENS UNDER A LOAD ONLY WHEN ITS WARM. ANY HELP WOULD LET ME ENJOY MY CA A LITTLE MORE. THANKS
