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.

We were on our way to S. Carolina with our 5th wheel camper when climbing a grade in West Virginia, I blew my first plug. We had to spend the night in back of a Ford dealership till the service dept. opened. After telling them my problem they proceeded to try to sell me a new engine or a new engine head costing anywhere from $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 and a minimum of three days to repair. After telling them No Way, the repaired the sparkplug hole with an insert and about 30 minutes later and $350.00 lighter in the pocket, I was on my way South... This was my first experience....It happened again a couple of years later on our way to Pennsylvania!! Had to rent a car that time and limped into the campgroung with the engine making the awful noise.
