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.

Ram 3500 6-cyl Diesel

I own a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 24V cummings diesel. I experienced a very serious engine failure my engine just turned off all its own. Apparently this is an well documented incident with this make and model. The failure is the lift pump, you will notice what a problem this is by going to any search engine with the search criteria of "Dodge + lift pump" there are a lot of stories just like mine posted all over internet bulletins hosted all over the country. Very serious issue considering these trucks are meant to carry heavy loads. I am convinced someone has already gotten hurt. There is a recall on the lift pump for the for 2000 it takes into account only a select few that were built in select plants within very specific dates. Not at all encompassing. Please see to it that this is followed up.
