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.

My Dodge Ram with the 5.7 (hemi) engine stalls without warning. Examples include stop lights, and driving conditions ranging from 20-65mph. Dodge serviced the vehicle but the problem still remains. The most recent event was 5/18/05. I am awaiting word on the current condition of my truck from the dealership...rem

problem #1

Jan 262004

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 750 miles
I was approaching a road that I was going to make a right turn on, after traveling on a highway at approximately 60 mph. When I had slowed enough to start to make my turn, the truck stalled without warning and I had to complete the turn without power steering to avoid hitting a car waiting to turn at the light. I am a fairly big guy and made the turn without incident but had to really pull on the steering wheel to turn it. If my wife had been driving she would not have been able to make the turn. This happened when the truck had approximately 500 to 1000 miles on it. It never stalled again since then. The truck now has 12000 miles on it.
