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.

In freezing cold weather the engine would not maintain and idle. If you didn't press the gas peddle, the engine would rev all the way down to zero and quit. The solution was to keep applying a small amount of gas pedal, even when stopped to maintain idle. When the weather warmed up later the problem went away. It had this problem for a few days in cold weather even after driving for an hour.
