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.

Vehicle full of grand kids and 102 degrees heat, no place to pull over on high bridge. Pulled over with steam and lots of heat. Very lucky no major damage to engine. Cooled it down and got it towed. Again shop says this is a problem he has seen many times with the Dodge trucks. This shop is not my regular. Need to know how long these parts are expected to last, no sign of leaks prior to this.
