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.

I HAVE AN INTERMITTENT FAULT THAT KEEPS OCCURRING WHILE DRIVING. THE ENGINE CLOSES DOWN AND REVERTS TO IDLE SPEED AND THE GLOW PLUG LIGHT FLASHES. TO CURE THIS THE IGNITION HAS TO BE TURNED OFF AND THE CAR RESTARTED. THIS CURES THE PROBLEM FOR A WHILE. GARAGE SAYS AS ITS INTERMITTENT THEY CANT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WHEN THEY TEST IT.
