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.

engine stalls when slowing down

The damn fuel keeps getting cut off when coming to a stop light. While cruising, no problem, EGR code comes on. I haven't been able to figure it out, but when i let the car cool down, the car starts again. I replaced the fuel pump, no luck. But I'm tired of being stranded at stop lights waiting 20 minutes at a time to go somewhere. Something is getting over heated and causing the car to cut the f*ckin fuel to the car. There has to be some way to fix this sh*t! I've been a tech 20 yrs and even "I"can not understand it.................... ANY SUGGESTIONS?

My 1998 Cirrus started stalling and completely stopping anytime I slowed down....parking lots, traffic thing I knew, it would completely stall out even when I slowed down to go around a corner, which was really dangerous. I had it to the mechanic repeatedly. We changed the points and plugs, replaced the fuel pump, got a new name it. Over $1000 later, it was still doing the exact same thing. I finally gave it away and got a 2000 Toyota which has not given me one moment of trouble. I'm totally sold on Japanese cars and won't own another American-made car, even if someone gives me one.
