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.

One day it warmed up and the temp gauge kept going up until it hit red. When I shut it off, the longer I waited to turn it off, the cooler it read (not a sensor issue).

If you're relatively good at fixing things yourself, just get a thermostat and gasket and do it yourself.
