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.

When filling my vehicle with gas the tank gets full and the pump stops but only after spitting fuel all over the ground. This recently started happening but now happens every time I fill up no mater what octane and no matter what station I choose. I would estimate up to a half gallon of gas spills on the ground. Service bulletin at shop alldata repair advised of similar issues being resolved by replacing evap canister, emission system integrity monitor, vapor line & filter. All these were replaced and still having the same issue. Dealer service department say they have never heard of this issue, yet local shop found the service bulletin. Just waiting for an explosion to happen at this point, let alone the ground pollution from the fuel. Related complaints I was able to find: NHTSA id: 10561110 10502815 10498166

I received safety recall N08/NHTSA 13V-038 approximately 4 months ago. To date, the manufacturer has not provided the dealer with the proper part (rear axle pinion nut) to correct the problem. I have been advised that failure of this part could cause a crash without warning.

Second incident-10/19/09. While sitting in parking lot with foot on brake, truck in drive, engine died out and would not restart. Had to tow to local dealer. Truck did restart after sitting overnight at dealership. Dealership could finally duplicate problem. No codes stored in any module. They checked voltage at the fuel pump and pump pressure, no pressure at pump. After lowering the fuel tank and checking the fuel, they inspected the fuel pump and discovered a power lead at the pump was loose and disconnects with vibration. Installed new fuel pump assembly. Old part not available.
