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.

i was driving and the check engine light came on, then the check oil light. after that the car sputtered really bad and died. it would start but ran really rough and only for a few seconds. its rattling really bad and spits and sputters then dies, almost as if its out of gas, but its not.
