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 #1

Nov 272007

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 liter with 48K miles that has had numerous problems (e.g. erg valve replaced, power steering reservoir (currently being replaced), and engine stalling at an idle, while turning, while backing up, or coasting. The stalling occurs out of the blue as if someone flipped a switch causing the engine to die. The electrical stays on, just the engine dies. Most of the time it starts right back up but sometimes it takes awhile. The stalling has happened numerous times and is very unpredictable. The stalling began about three - four months ago. I currently have it in for repairs at lee's summit Dodge, lee's summit Missouri.
