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.

Well first it was on E and I went to the gas station and it was fine..then the next day it wouldn't start. so I left it alone and, the next day it made a yun,yun yun sound (like it was choking)then it started right up and drove for about 10 min. then it cut off and i had to sit for like 30-45 mins. before it started again. I drove back home and it wouldn't do anything so the next day i got in tried it and it started right up.. but once moved it cut off after the engine warms a little...before 2 wks ago never had any problems with it besides the normal( tires, oil changs' lights..minimal things) please help and tell me what it could be.I have talked to a lot of different people and shops and they all say something different, so i am asking to save myself money...i think shops and mechanics try to get over on women so if you can help it would be appreciated..thank you
