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.

The contact complained about an oil ring failure the engine while driving. The engine was making a fluttering sound, and the oil gauge indicated a rapid loss of oil pressure. He pulled the vehicle over to the side of the road. Upon inspecting the vehicle, he discovered the oil ring had blown out of the engine. He added enough oil to the engine to be able to drive the vehicle into his certified repair shop. Repairs were made to the vehicle at the contact's expense.
