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.

Just like other complaints we have a 2003 Monte Carlo that just blew a little ninety degree elbow that is located on passenger side of the head and appears to run through serpentine belt tensioner, this put put my son on side of road, I saw another post with the exact same problem and as this. I don't even know what to ask for at the parts store. IF anybody has any information on name of the part and approximate cost information, it would be greatly appreciated. THANKS

ok, now things are getting ridiculous. after a water pump a heater core and several flushings, now my radiator has a hole in it and it is all over the parking lot. I mean seriously! it should be against the law to sell anyone a product like this.
