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.

Like everyone else's complaints, the engine started knocking. It would go away after warming up. The oil pressure would drop after warm up to 0 when you came to a stop and the oil light would come on. It continued to take longer to quiet and finally just didn't stop. The oil pressure sits around 30 when driving but continues to knock like hell. Had to park it until I find a solution. I have read complaint after complaint but not one solution...anyone have the answer? Oil pump? Lifters? Push rods? Rocker Arms? NEEDS A REBUILD??

ANYONE have a solution?

Thanks
