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 #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 145,000 miles


About a week and a half ago my car started making a whining noise that sounded like a belt. After several days the car started jerking and not wanting to switch gears. It will stall when taking off then jump into gear but when trying to accelerate it will not want to switch gears to let you go faster. On hills it struggles in this manner even more. After a week the check engine light came on and I took it to Auto Zone to have the engine code read. The codes were trans-axle control module failure and 3rd and 4th gear ratios off. I have talked to one transmission repair shop about the issue and asked what price range I would be looking to spend to fix it and he said probably anywhere from $1600 to $2200. I have not taken it in to be inspected yet. I did try Lucas transmission stop slip and so far that has not made any improvement in the condition.
