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.

Purchased car in 2002 and ran fine until about 8 months ago. Replaced alternator and car ran fine for another 3 months. Since, has failed while driving on highway and city roads. Replaced ignition control module. Ran for another month. Same problem arose. Replaced spark plugs and engine sensor. Ran for another 2 months. Still having same problem. Will kill while driving and eventually won't start at all. Will turn over but won't fire.
