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.

My transmission is an electronic type being a 1997. It's having trouble going into and staying in high gear. I've heard alot of nightmare stories about the Dodge transmissions, especially around the 95-120,000 mile mark. So far I've had the filter changed-nope that's not it. Physically I am unable to do the work myself. So, money is an issue and I can't afford to have a mechanic do a trial and error fix-up. Which direction should I take from here?
