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

Caravan 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 144,000 miles

The vehicle will shift, but hard shift and found every 3rd time I start from a stop it will not shift unless I turn the engine off and start it right back up and then I'm good for 2 more times it needs to shift up. Anybody have any ideas what could be the problem? I have been told a number of things it could be, not going to just start spending money until I know what is the problem.
