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.

Every winter when its cold and i start my car when i put it in drive i will be pushing the pedal to the floor and my speed is only at 10 mph...it revs the engine up horribly and takes awhile for it to warm up and for the transmission to get into gear

If the car is sitting in the heat w/ the engine off for a long period of time, it will rev up as if it was stuck in neutral when I try to reverse, then put it in drive.
