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 Cummins

  • Automatic transmission
  • 229,965 miles

engine runs rough and noisy blows white smoke

OK, at first this looks like I'm whining about a motor that failed at over 220,000 miles, but stay tuned I have 7- 2004/2005 5.9 Cummins Diesel 2500 Dodge Crew cab Trucks. Of these all but 1 has had the same engine failure, this kind of defeats the value of Diesel engines if they fail at Gas engine longevity numbers.

I have been installing Jasper Engines and now one of them has failed at 60,000 miles, so I'm out of the diesel engine replacement business.
