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 love the the looks and performance of the 1996 mustang, but this is the second problem with the engine and its just really a pain in the ass to keep dropping money into it. might as well just put a brand new mustang engine in them. god, that or like a minivan or something. won't be as quick as what those 3.8's put out, but at least it won't sh*t the bed
