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.

The contact states when trying to start vehicle the engine would not start. When turning the ignition heard an extremely loud pop. She raised the hood and discovered the manifold completely shattered. No repairs have been made. This same problem occurred previously, and the manifold was replaced at the contact's expense. The fuel pressure regulator was installed.

All my anti-freeze leaked out and the low coolant light never came on but I did not have any heat. I did notice anti-freeze on the ground and took my car to a repair shop. They said I needed a water pump and the intake manifold gaskets replaced. I have also experienced a popping noise on the left front wheel when turning wheel to the right. No fatalities or injuries as yet.
