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 have always taken good care of the van, using fuel additives to clean the system and regular preventative maintenance. It sounded like it was missing so I took it to the local Dodge dealer. They replaced the plugs and soldered a wire. It was still missing and they said I may need a valve job. I decided to put some engine cleaner in the tank to clean it and give it time. When I was on my way back home the engine blew a rod so I was stranded 300 miles from home. Had it towed to a Dodge dealer and the news was you need to put a new or used engine in the vehicle. The estimate was about $2400, with $850 being the cost of the engine. It was a hard choice for me but I decided to junk the van since it has cost me a bundle in repairs from the time I bought it.
