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.

TEMPERATURE GAUGE SHOWS THE CAR IS HOT, I HEAR A GRINDING SOUND, LIKE A CHEAP GAS SOUND, UNDER THE HOOD IT LOOKS LIKE A SMALL AMOUNT OF OIL HAS SPEWED FROM SOMEWHERE... HELP?

UPDATE: I HAD THE THERMOSTAT REPLACED BY A FRIEND MECHANIC AND IT COST ONLY THE $15.00 PARTS; IT HAD THE ORIGINAL THERMOSTAT, NOT TOO BAD FOR 8 YEARS
