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.

problem #3

Venture LE 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 174,000 miles

This van has largely been a reliable vehicle. It has had the A/C system & the valve-train replaced under OEM warranty. We had the transmission replaced at around 120,000 miles. For the past 6 months we have fought a "Check Engine" light. The mechanics say that the computer shows a "lean code." They've replaced the fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, mass air flow sensor, primary computer, & O2 sensors (four times). They've "smoke tested" the system for a vacuum leak, found one, and replaced the offending part. The engine light still comes on!!! We notice that the engine surges under load, it has a "lifter tap" nearly continuously!!! Other than these annoyances, the van runs fine... at least so far. I'm sure that it is on it's last leg.
