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.

Electrical control of engine is by small module. When it is malfunctioning the engine does not idle or shift properly and then overheats and can blow the head gasket like it did on my sons car. Stays fixed for about 5 months. Most shops diagnose it as a bad thermostat which has been replaced several times.

Time to sell the truck or replace the engine.
