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.

One morning, my car was just would not start, and when it did, in shook slightly as it idled. I had no idea what was wrong at first. I removed my spark plugs to see what was the matter; when i shined a flashlight into the cylinders, I could see coolant was leaking into 3 of them! I haven't had it fixed yet, and it only idles rough until the coolant has steamed out of the exhaust pipe, and it leaks back in as it sits over night. I'm pretty sure it is a bad intake manifold gasket, and I sure hope it's not a head gasket. Has this happened to anybody else? Anyone know how much it will be to repair?
