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.

Fixed hose leak; now found out there's a leak in the water pump. It is costly to fix and has to be done by the car dealer. Right now I have to put anti-freeze in radiator tank about every three days (very costly).

My car is overheating and is somehow losing coolant. I cannot find a leak and the head gasket appears to be fine. I fill it with more coolant and within 3 weeks the temperature gauge is at H within 3 mins of starting the car. I need help!
