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 have a 1999 ford escort in dec. I had to replace the head gasket. a month or so after that it started bump jumping. at first it started jumping bad around 45 miles an hour. Then it started doing it at a lower speed taking off in first gear it almost don't want to go it jumps so bad. I've changed plugs, wires, coil pack a few more things that people have told me to try... nothing. I think these cars need to be recalled and a different car replaced to me. Thanks for your time reading this. Whew that vent felt good. Billy jo
