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.

I have had nothing but problems with this van where do i start? First i took the motor apart trying to find where the hell the tick was coming from found out there was this solid steel rod that the valves ride on and this one loose valve wore a 1/4 in groove in the seel!? what? i replaced the rod in the dead of winter about 15 degrees outside in my back yard it ran perfect for about two weeks then tick tick tick tick that was my first experience with this dam van.

Then a couple years of tickin the instrument cluster started coming on @ of when ever it felt like it, then it finally died, the cluster not the car. if anybody can help with either problem it would be grately appreciated

My problem has not been fixed yet because no one knows what is going on with my van. When it is put on a computer system, it comes up all clear. I am stumped and I need someones help and advice. I don't want to get a ticket because my instrument panel isn't working and I am not sure how fast I am driving.
