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.

Intrepid SXT 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission

i had what sounded like a lifter knock for about a month. I tried changing the oil repeatedly I tried adding RESTORE to the oil, I evn spent the extra buck for the Lucas oil additive. Nothing worked, still had that damn knock. I brought it to the dealership and the mechanic tried telling me it wasn't a lifter knock. he said it was the fuel injectors making the noise. Yeah, and i must be low on headlight fluid, right? needless to say i went to a different dealership 2 hours away and sure enough, popped the valve train cover and there were 2 loose lifters.
