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.

This car has been awesome until Oct then it over heated, so I flushed the radiator, changed the thermostat, and water pump, replaced bottom hose on radiator, now the car runs good for a little while then, the inside air goes cold, check engine light comes on gives a code of P1285 cylinder head too hot, but the tempo gauge doesn't always go up, if the temp gauge goes up, the check engine light usually doesn't come on, my brother in law wants to replace the cylinder head temp sensor and the blend door actuator, but I'm not sure what I should do..anybody help me??????
