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.

Suburban V8

Coolant running out of back of engine as soon as engine starts up. Can't afford fix right now. Riding bike but need vehicle for my job. I can probably fix it if the repairs aren't too hard or no special tools needed but minimal time and must do it on residential street.

I took my car for service "system coolant flash" and on my way back home I had the leak. I took the car back to the dealer "DIFEO CHEVROLET" and the answer was. They are not responsable for the problem things happen when you do the flash". I pay the repair.
