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 engine sometimes stalls while consumer releases the clutch, the engine hesitates and sometimes has little power. The consumer smells fuel and sulfer, the dealer can not locate any problems. The starter does not work properly. The air conditioner blows hot. The transmission is slipping, the clutch locks up in reverse and is noisy. The consumer complains that the vehicle does not stop fast enough. The fan clutch was noisy.

My truck has not failed but since I have owned this vehicle it has once in a while started with what seems like a starter drag, it will not do it all the time and there is no set time? I have had it back to the dealer twice and both times they could find nothing wrong. I have tried it after letting the vehicle for various times.....5 mins.,all night, etc.
