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 it is basically a leak in the front seal. Or so my father told me. My father is a mechanic, but is a bit unsure as to how the new model cars these days function. To him, it seems like a front seal leak. Also, it comes and goes, sort of, I think.

At first it kept leaking, and I just kept having to clean the oil spots that were left on the ground, then one day the leaks stopped.

I thought that maybe all of the leaking fluid had been drained or something.

But then about few days later, the leak started again.

I don't know what it really is.

I am just trying to figure out how to maintain and fix a 2002 Ford Mustang so that I can possible fix this car on my own.

I would tell my father who is a mechanic to help me, but I feel as though this is something I have to do on my own.
