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.

The problem was a nightmare because i took the car to a ASE Certified mechanic (what a Joke) and he assured me that there was nothing wrong. Meanwhile 30 minutes after leaving the shop the bucking started yet again. I could tell that it was a fuel issue by the way the bucking and jerking was intermittent before it finally died (like contractions before child birth), what is worse yet the fine folks in Dodge's Research and Development decided that the fuel filter is not serviceable and can only be purchased with the entire fuel pump assembly ($224.99 at Auto Zone). The fuel pump is inside the gas tank and removing the gas tank is fairly simple however the threaded ring that secures the pump assembly in place was a bear to remove. All in all the repair was fairly simple for the average do-it-yourself person like myself. I just replaced it today and I will repost if this doesn't permanently fix the problem.

The car would drive for about 20 minutes, and then would buck and act like fuel wasn't getting to the car. Then would eventually stop. I would have to pull over, turn the car off for about 5 minutes, and then I could drive for about another 5-10 minutes. I brought it to a garage, and they ended up having to replace the entire fuel pump. It worked, but man was it expensive!
