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.

leaks transmission fluid when carrying a load

WHEN I HAVE A HEAVY LOAD IN BED OR PULL A TRAILER OR TOW A CAR W/A CHAIN, THE TAIL END OF MY TRANSMISSION LEAKS TRANS. FLUID. NOT A LOT BUT ENOUGH TO WORRY ME. I JUST WONDER IF ANYONE KNOWS WHY THIS HAPPENS? IM THINKING MAYBE WHEN THE YOKE IS PUSHED INSIDE TRANS, THAT MAYBE THE RUST ON THE YOKE JUST LETS TRANS FLUID LEAK OUT. PULLED A CAR ON A TRAILER AND FOR APPROX. A MONTH, I HAD EXTRA DIRT ON THE REAR OF THE TRUCK POSSIBLY DUE TO TRANS FLUID GETTING SUCKED UP IN MY DRAFT ON THE ROADS AND BEING A DIRT MAGNET.
