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.

problem #1

Sep 152010


  • 95,000 miles
About 9/15/2010 the vehicle, while stopped at a red light failed to accelerate when light changed and the gas pedal was depressed. The truck then stalled and took up to 5 minutes to restart. The incident did not repeat for several months. The next incident the truck failed to accelerate after slowing to near stop at a yield at a highway crossing nearly causing an accident. Replaced fuel filter and had a tune up although it had recently been done and it didn't happen again for a few weeks. After a few weeks of hard driving with no incidence the truck again failed to accelerate on highway entrance ramp nearly causing another accident. After pulling over and turning off the engine and restarting it drove on the highway fine, but stalled when exiting the highway. The latest incident, driving on the highway the truck drove fine, until exiting. It failed to respond to pressure on the gas pedal and stalled leaving a woman and child on the side of the road for 2 hours waiting for a tow. During that time it would not start. Towed to dealership and after having the vehicle for a week, they stated they pulled codes showing fuel injector was bad, egr valve sticking, needs some sort of wiring harness, turbo needs cleaning and some sort of chip total cost over $2000.
