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.

Whenever I travel without stopping for 80 miles or more, the "check engine" light goes on. The motor acts as if it were out of time. I have taken it in several times to FORD, and they said they can't find the problem, but they said it seems to be a catalic converter problem. I have changed it, and the problem still exists.
