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 transmission in my 98 Durango is not shifting into 3rd / passing gear. rpms get to 3000-3500. I have to let rpms go down to 1000 and it usually kicks in once I give gives it gas. but it's getting worse. Help me cause i don't want to buy a new vehicle. I had the transmission oil filter changed did not help at all.
