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.

2004 Dodge Sprinter Owner Comments

problem #2

Sprinter 5-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,769 miles


Fan pulley dislodges and tears up the front accessories. During extensive travels I have found dozens of Sprinters having had the same problem. I think that the design or materials that make up the pulley are flawed and you should investigate. I further believe the descrepency based on conversations with mechanics is well know to Dodge yet is also covered up by Dodge.

Sprinter Diesel

The crank shaft damper pully & R & R timing chain broke, rendering the vehicle immobile. Parts were replaced and 2 months later, the same thing happened.
