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.

My 1997 suburban has recently started having trouble accelerating it struggles to get going and moving into the next gear and then will start picking up. Now the check engine light has been coming on. After it sits and rest for over 24 hours it seems to run alot better but the check engine light is still on. I have checked all the fluids and connections and everything seems to be in order. It also has a slight "whine" while the truck is running and when it struggles to accelerate it make a clanking noise.
