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 #1

Ram 2500 5.9L V6 Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles


When the a/c or defrost selector is turned to either position. while driving on the hwy. the trans or the engine seems to hesitate and then surge ahead momentarily. and this condition keeps on happening every few seconds until it is switched to the off position. it almost feels like the trans is slipping or locking up momentarily. the local garage kept it for three or four days and trouble shot it. they still don't have a clue what it is or what to do. and i do not have any experience or equipment to check it out.
