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 mechanic told me that Chevy uses a plastic part for the interior manifold gaskets. factory made. that is BS!! if you have a 1996-1999 Chevy Malibu, Monte Carlo or Lumina, you are screwed. its going to happen to you. an interior manifold gasket leak will happen. i wont ever buy a Chevy car again!
