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 noticed the last month that my fuel milege has dropped off, and the other day I had my hood opened when the engine was running and smelled gas. So I looked down through my air intake plenum, and I could see vapor coming out of an injector. Then under the injector, I could see a small puddle of gas, laying on my intake. So I am not driving the car till it is fixed. The car was recalled once for the injector o rings, and I am going to try to get the dealer to fix it again. If you ask me it is a poor design. I got rid of an 86 Chrysler that was a turbo engine with more than 200000 miles on it and I never had trouble with the o rings. This 97 has been recalled once, and I had this trouble before and they said a injector was cracked. So I paid them 270 to fix that. Now I am pretty sure it is the same injector. There is no excuse for this nonsense.
