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.

My truck started to take longer to get it to start after taking it to my local dealership it was found to be the fuel pressure relief valve on the fuel pump was leaking back into the fuel tank this was no surprise because when the symptoms first started I investigated the problem on some Dakota groups on the internet and found it to be a common problem for quite a few years. You would think Dodge would fix the problem but then again they charge $442 for a fuel pump so where is the incentive.
