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.

oil in antifreeze oil in antifreeze

My "Low Coolant Level" light came on one day, so I checked, and sure enough, it was low. I topped off the rad, drove the car for a day or so, and when I checked the next day, I saw how dirty my coolant was. I heard that the intake manifold gasket is a very common problem with these cars, but I tried to be optimistic. My next oil change I noticed coolant mixed with my oil. Damn it. That pretty much confirmed it for me. I replaced it myself, as the dealership wanted $850.00 + tax.
