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 was driving down the road, when all of a sudden, the engine just quit. I tried to start and it would turn over, but not start. No fire to the spark plug. A friend put it on his computer and it would not even read the computer. He feels we need to replace the computer and that will fix it.? What do you think.
