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.

I have a 1998 dodge 2500 ram 4x4 pickup...well since i have own this truck went to use the 4x4 , just pulling out of my drive way, i put it in 4 wheel drive (shifter) the 4 wheel drive would not engage right away. all i would do is spin.. so i tried to put it in 4 high also still nothing so i would try to keep trying to back up or go forward and still it would not engage.. so i noticed only time it will engage into 4 wheel if i am only moving driving down the road then it will engage,, so any one who can help me figure this out would be much help. thanks
