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 #2

Feb 212004

Ram 2500 4WD 10-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 93,000 miles


Clutch when depress does not disengage. It is to my believe it is an engineering flaw in the clutch slave cylinder. It happens more fequent when vechile is warm than cold. I have had two clutches replaced, 4 transmissions and 6 slave cylinders replaced and it is now in the repair shop again with 93,000 miles.
