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.

Ever since I bought this car I have had problems. Two week after buying it the check engine light comes on saying there was a problem with the fuel system. At that time the car ran perfectly fine, no idling or anything else. We replaced all of the 02 sensors and the light still came back on. Then we had the catalytic converter replaced and it still came back on. We talked to several mechanics who said that the codes were saying the car was not burning all of the gas and it was would be alright to drive the car for awhile and the try replacing other parts. Well now it is idling horribly when you are at a stop and have it in drive. It will even kill itself when coming to a stop but will always start right back up. Our next move is going to be to replace the fuel pressure regulator and hope that works. If not we will either have to replace the fuel pump or consider buying a new car and cutting our losses.
