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.

I have had a constant problem with the fan belt squeaking before and after replacing the alternator, idler pulley, tension pulley and the fan belt 3 times. I have heard that it could be a misaligned power steering pulley but it looks fine. I asked a service manager and he said that perhaps there was a recall regarding this issue. Belts last about 250 miles and start squeaking. It is an annoying sound, why doesn't someone have the answer?

Thanks.
