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.

Computer checks have shown possible vacum leak and other possible problems but nothing specific is indentified. Have replaced plugs, made no difference. How do you check vacuum pressure, smoke test? Van surges when acceleration is taken to high level. It's like either the vacuum is restored and vehicle returns to normal status but then reverts to sputtering after decceleration.

We had put some gas stabilizer NOS from Auto Zone and it seemed to relieve the condition for a little while but problem returned. I am leaning to either vacuum or fuel problem. Anyone have prior successes with this problem?
