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 too spent a small fortune to resolve the same stalling issue. the so-called mechanics at my dodge dealership (foothill ranch, ca) could not have been more useless. to make a long story short, i sprayed gumout inside the throttle body (beyond the throttle flap) and scrubbed the inside with a plastic bristle brush. i did this repeatedly and removed all kinds of black carbon build up. a professional cleaning, or new throttle body, would surely work best. but where i once expected to stall a few times a day, i now only stall about once every couple weeks. good luck.
