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.

Ram 1500 SLT 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,410 miles

seems that the complaints are out there, DODGE has a tech svc bltn # 08-004 and NHTSA has a ref # 10025346 about this problem but they still want your MONEY to fix their problem. the hoses are not mounted properly and they come loose so you have to keep putting fluid in the pump. poor design by DODGE the newer trucks do not have this problem
