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.

Was sitting in a parking lot on a hot day with my girlfriend and all of a sudden it just started humming, we both noticed right away, and i turned my truck off, then back on and it wasn't humming. ever since, the humming kind of comes and goes, most of the time on hot days though. Definitely an annoying thing to deal with, when it starts it will drown me and my music out, and others can hear it as well. Like the previous report, whenever i step on the gas though, it goes away.

i have noticed that on a hot day i have this really loud hum coming from under the hood of my truck. i thought it was because the a/c but it does it even if i don't run it. it is so damn annoying!! for the first month it was doing it, every time i tried to get someone to listen to it, it wouldn't hum. now it does it and EVERYONE hears it. oh yeah, when i give it gas weather i am driving or idling i cant hear it. if anyone has the same problem i would like to know.
