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 car wont start!!!...help please!!! i turn the key over to start it and the fuel pump/auto shutoff relay/fuel pump relay all start to click rapidly, and the starter wont engage. after about 30 mins of screwing with it....it finally turns over and the fuel pump seems to go off after the system is pressurized. then it starts but you have to rev up the gas in order for it to stay running. after about ten minutes of that.....i can let off the gas pedal and it usually stays running. seems to run ok after ALL of this. if anyone out there has had this same problem, and knows what to do about it PLEASE fill in the blanks for me as i dont have alot of money and i am a single parent of 4 kids. i MUST get this problem fixed!!! thanks.....chris

Intrepid Sedan 2.7L V6

Hear only one "click" sound when you turn the ignition key. Engine won't turn at all. Engine will start if crank several times. Don't want to get stuck nowhere. Rather change the Starter. Problem solved until today when the heat blower only works on max. setting as I already posted. Keep my finger cross and hope the engine don't die on me so soon. Considering Malibu or Impala my next car. Any Chrysler car with 2.7L engine on it will have plenty of problems as far as I read about.
