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 #2

Dec 012011

Ram 3500 5.9L Cummins

  • Manual transmission
  • 86,245 miles


There was no warning. I stopped at a red light, started to go right on red, the truck moved about 10 feet and then wouldn't go more than about 5 miles per hour. I made an appointment at Walley Armour to have it looked at. When I took it in, just as I pulled in, it started working again. I told the service manager what happened, he wrote down, loss of power.

They had the truck for 2 days. I called because I needed it. They said they couldn't find anything wrong so I went to get it. They charged me $85.00 to look at it, it should have been under warranty. I was upset about it and I told them so. I got in the truck, went to leave, and guess what, it wouldn't go again, talk about frustrating.

I then took it to a shop which works on large trucks, they said the problem was the injector pump. A small electrical part in the pump would intermittently fail causing the problem. It cost me $1,400 00 to fix it, should have been warranted.
