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.

This has happened several times. I will be driving the vehicle, and the rpms will drop too low (even when giving the truck gas) and suddenly the vehicle will stall. This has happened going 60 mph on the highway, during turns, and also when coming to a stop. The vehicle does restart immediately, though when I am driving I have to put it in neutral to restart it. I have almost been in accidents due to this issue. I had the fuel intake cleaned thinking that might be the issue.

This is a recall #P77/NHTSA 14V-796 I brought my vehicle to hurley Chrysler, 2173 S. woodland dr, deland, Florida 32720 - phone number 1-386-736-3000. They told me they would call me when the parts came in for the recall. It has been over a month and nothing from them. They were kind of nonchalant about it; like I was bothering them. I would like to get my truck fixed before something happens to it. Can you please help? thanks, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
