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.

problem #2

Ram 1500 4x4 Off Road 360

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles

replaced it the 1st time from autozone ($120). Noticed the tubing was a bit smaller, but the size and shape of the core was the same. Went ahead and replaced it. About 8 or so hours. Could not get the smaller tube to quit leaking, showed autozone guys. They seemed to not care, so no going to autozone anymore. Left it in while it dripped(luckily) outside the truck. It start to leak again inside the truck after about another yr in a half or so. Replaced it with a true dodge piece and it's been fine. knock on wood. for another 100,000 miles. $340 bucks

Ram 1500 V8

I am not really sure when the problem began but there is a constant pool of water on the floorboard of the passenger side of the truck. I was told that there was a crack in the casing or a plug in the drain. Well when smoke started blowing out the vents, I went ahead and had the casing replaced. No more smoke, but the water still pools on the floorboard and we have no idea where to look because we checked the drain hose and it is open. It is really difficult for people to keep their pant legs dry,
