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.

A small hose for the coolant leaked onto the top of the engine. The hose was above a spark plug. The hose leaked, some coolant landed in a spark plug cavity and seeped down along the plugs and entered the cylinder. When I started it was missing 1 cylinder firing because the plug was fouled or wet. The engine check light was flashing. Repair consisted of changing the hard to reach tubing and plugs.
