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.

In the beginning it was stalling on slow idle. And I had a check engine code of 02 sensor, so I changed the spark plugs and their wires. And still no change. Then removed the catalysers. I also cleaned the intake valve connected to the tps. And now it no longer stalls but burps-jumps at 2000 rpm and the check engine light starts to flash. So is it my catalysers doing that or is there another problem ? Not too sure, I am lost?
