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.

Engine fire when running 70 mph, the tube from egr valve to dpfe ( egr sensor ) just fall and the isolator between firewall and engine just started to burn. I replaced the hose in place on the dpfe end killed the fire with water. Wiring is lightly burnt and the evaporator hoses started to melt but i can drive my car safely. I removed the isolator and cleaned all the mess... I have to repair hoses and main wiring to be sure it is safe.
