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 "service engine soon" light came up one morning. A certified friend mechanic checked it out at home with his engine analyzer/computer & found nothing wrong. He then checked out the gas cap if secure. After awhile, the light went off. I still can't believe it was the gas cap because I'm very careful about loose gas caps. Anyway, after 2 days of driving, the light came out again. Beforehand, he suggested to have the gas cap replaced if this happens again. So I changed it & have been driving around for almost 3 weeks now but the light is still there. Somebody said that it might take a couple of gas tank refills before the gas cap get "cross-threaded" or sealed tight. I already had 2 refills & the light's still there. The van's running well & am experiencing no problems whatsoever. I just want to have that light turned off.

This is the second time that I have had problems with the fuel system... and it has so little mileage on it ! I checked and could not find any recalls on this item. Can you let me know if there are any, the dealer says that don't have any.
