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.

If I buy gas with 25% ethanol or more, the engine misses badly. I have to use fuel-cleaner to allow my truck to run on the gas.

Always considered myself a fair mechanic. my dwell meter, timing light, and other equipment is of no use on this computerized piece of junk, No check engine light or codes show up. So here we go new plugs, wires cap rotor, drain replace fuel, fuel filter, bought a Haynes manual, no help there. Lots of advice, suggestions, things to try, nothing works, Little truck I thought I loved now I hate the darn thing.
