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

May 102004

Dakota SLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6 miles

The transmission drifts in and out of overdrive for no apparent reason. I can put it in O/D by using the O/D button to turn it off and then turning it back on. That solution, however, only last a short time before I again see the tach creeping up 500 or 600 RPM.

This week the dealer (on warranty) replaced the computer but nothing changed. My next move will be to replace the throttle position sensor as I reason that the computer is taking it's directions from that sensor and that sensor may be giving it bad information.

Anyone got a better idea?
