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.

Coil went out on vacation 700 mls from home. I was able to do this myself but found very stringent requirements for wire routing and plug wire sheilding was necessary to prevent crossfire. Found info online to route exactly as specified and replace all wire sheilding looms as they are stock. Big pain in the rear since this area is difficult to reach. Had it not been for all the warnings of crossfire I would have routed them differently to avoid tight areas.
