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.

I not only want to vent, but I would like to ask if anyone else has had this same problem. The vehicle has run very well up to now. When it hit 200000 miles all kinds of things started to go out. First there was the 02 sensors, the fuel pump, fuel filter, air conditioning and now it just won't always start. It turns over okay and it may even begin to start but then it just turns over and will not fire. I took it to a good mechanic and he said that he could not find the problem because it started for him everyday. When I went to pick it up it would not start. I then towed it to another mechanic where it is still setting after two weeks. He has run all kinds of tests on it and has not found the problem yet. he said it is not the fuel pump, not the filter, not the fuel injectors. he said it has spark and it has fuel he just hasn't found the problem yet. If someone out ther has an idea please let me know ASAP PLEASE! I love this car and it is really good shape for the miles that I have on it. All the miles, by the way, are long distance easy miles not your in town stop and go miles.
