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.

After changing the fuel pump twice and still having the problem it was finally discovered the vent system was not working so fuel could not flow to engine smoothly causing shut off while idling. VERY dangerous coming down hills and braking. Dealer finally fixed it but after other expensive and unnecessary repairs!
