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.

Slow fuel leak from top of the engine. Filled the valley in between the heads with fuel. Replaced the mechanical pump that sits in the valley behind the fuel bowl along with hoses that go to it. Fixed problem. Did the job myself and boy was it a pain. You have to pull the Turbo off which is not too easy since you have to have universal jointed sockets and really long extensions to get it off. They would probably charge an arm to do this at a shop.
