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 is a common occurrence with the 5 speed nv4500 transmission in a dodge diesel. The manufacturer should find a permanent solution instead if a band aid for the solution. Every one who owes one of these trucks and uses it for what it was built for will eventually have to fix this. Why should we have to spend 6-8 hours of our time for only a temporary fix. If any one has a better solution please let me know
