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.

Well I replaced the intake manifold gaskets on my 2001 ford gt mustang 4.6L V8 right after that the knocking noise in the engine (mostly coming from the driver side valve cover) I have not really tried to diagnose the problem or done much research cause I'm not sure where to start. I have asked a few people but I think it has something to do with the timing but recently heard on the internet that you would need to rebuild the engine. I hope that's not the case. Anybody have any advice?
