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 have had the truck since new, about two years ago. I started having problems with the oil light coming on and the oil pressure dropping off, with no lack of oil in the engine.

If i shut off the engine for a couple of minutes and turn it back on the light goes out and the comes back up. However if I continue to run the engine it start making a noise. I have had the problem check several times, even had the engine flushed twice and the oil pump checked twice, yet know one seems to know what the problem is.
