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 contact stated after leaving the vehicle idling there was a loud boom sound heard. The temperature that day was 47 degrees below zero. The contact did not notice a problem at first because the vehicle was still working. After driving to a filling station, there was a fuel leakage discovered under the vehicle. There was a visible split in the fuel tank. The vehicle was towed to a dealership. The dealer was unable to determine the exact cause of the failure. The fuel tank, pump and heat shield were replaced. The contact noticed the original fuel tank had a crack three feet long in the top. There were wires around the fuel pump that had melted. Although the fuel tank had never been replaced the fuel pump was replaced in October of 2005.

Consumer states: Something was wrong with the sensor in the gas tank. Was told this by the dealer. The light came on indicating low fuel, and the gauge showed low fuel but actually there was a full tank of gas.

Fuel sloshes and moves truck and makes thump noise as if no baffles. Afraid it will break tank and spill fuel. Was taken to dealer for repair but not put on shop repair report as I had requested.
