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.

I bought the vehicle, and about a week later noticed a slight ignition knock. I discovered that this was due to a failed intake manifold gasket on the bottom of the manifold. to check this, remove the pvc and breather from the valve covers, and put your hands over them; if there's a good strong vacuum, this is your problem. chrysler has a technical service bulletin out, yet the dealer did not check for this, despite having done a "presale inspection". i smell... BS!
