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.

Fixed the transmission after almost 200,000 miles of being a farm truck. Now the truck will start but runs rough at idle and has a hard time getting up to speed. When slowing down it will stall out unless i keep my foot on the gas. Love the truck tryin to get it fixed up again. Any help is appreciated
