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.

Check engine light has appeared on an average of 1 time per month since purchase of the vehicle 8/4/07. Repeated visits to dealership gegnas Chrysler in philadelphia pa has not corrected issue to date. Upon connection to diagnostic machinery various failure codes have appeared with one in common P0300 that relates specifically to multiple cylinder misfire or rough idle. This apparently is due to valves that are slow to close due to a build up of carbon on the valve system. Two Chrysler dealerships (brandywine Chrysler and gegnas claim to have performed this tsb each and it took less than a day to do. I have received a qualified second opinion from midas muffler that has informed me that this is not a one day job as it required removal of the manifold and cleaning and possible rotation of valves and servicing of valve springs. I have all receipts documenting the 11 returns of the vehicle to the dealership and will gladly provide them upon request. 1-800-my lemon has been sent this information as the check engine light again reappeared 3/30/09 and after asking to assist me with the car due to loss of power (they are close to my home) they provided written documentation of the code that was found and assisted me with transferring my car to dealership where no action was taken because the check engine light was not lit despite being handed the service bulletin physically by me that day. The owner stated "he needed to see the light lit- a big game that has been going on for over a year now! the check engine light reappeared 4/5/09 and I spoke with the owner of the dealership again 4/6 and arranged to bring the car back. This morning 4/8 the light is out again. Two sensors have been replaced out of four on the car sensor (1/1 and B2/S2), the pcn has been reset, valve spring retainer locks have been replaced, all spark plugs have been changed out, air filter changed, map sensor replaced, fuel system cleaned, egr valve replaced. What else is left to re left!
