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 #1

Aug 082008

Caravan 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 183,677 miles


the way the body for the caravan comes from the factory, the strut towers under the hood have small oblong holes put in them at the top, sealed supposedly by these small rubber grommets. being that they are made with layered sheet steel for strength they are at high risk for rust, because water can get IN BETWEEN the layers and rust out your towers in a period of a year or so gone unchecked. the rubber grommets are almost useless at preventing this, so i decided to go and buy some gasket maker from a hardware store and smothered it in the hole after first applying penetration oil to the rust to stop it from continuing. 2 years later the rust has not moved any more and the strut towers are nice and strong.
