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.

I bought a 1996 ford contour gs with the 2.5l v6 dohc cam with a 105,000 miles and i started to smell oil and it was dripping under the car took it to dealer and they said it was leaking from the oil pan and crank shaft and the mail rear seal and it would cost $ 2,000 dollars to take out the engine and reseal it all so i sold the car after two months big bummer never by one of those again
