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.

First I thought the plug was loose then found out there was a tiny hole in the pan itself. Was advised I could maybe fix it cheap with a sheet metal screw and a neoprene washer. Sadly the pan is so rotten it just made a much larger hole. Pan is $48 from a dealer, gaskets are about $20 I think, the rest is an estimate of the labor.
