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 noticed fluid leaking from under the from end. I located a leaky transmission cooler line from underneath the radiator/fan area. I was able to cut the leaky portion out of the line using a simple pipe cutter, replaced it with a length of 9 millimeter 3/8" rubber transmission cooler hose and fastened with a pair of hose clamps on each end. Topped off fluid after. Took me about an hour or so and 65 bucks. I'm glad I noticed it when I did, as the fluid could've leaked completely and ruined the transmission.
