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.

Sometimes when I first start the vehicle and other times when sitting idle at a red light. Once I try to accelerate the truck sputters then all the sudden takes off. It only seems to happen when in 1st gear, but every once in awhile it will cut out while on the freeway and then come right back, like it had a hiccup. I have had so many drive line, fuel, transmission issues that seem to be related that I have yet to resolve them all.
