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.

When put in gear and cold, rattling noise coming from the power steering, tensioner, idler pulley area. Goes away after engine is warm. Tensioner pulley and idler pulley have been replaced. Serpentine is stretched and out of specs. Replaced serpentine belt from Autozone that was slightly smaller than stretched original but still out of specs. Noise still noted.
