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.

It's been happening more & more. I am wondering if it's a leak in the tank (water), something with the fuel pump, vacuum hoses, etc (google is so wonderfully helpful)... all I care is that it stops, um, stopping, when I'm in line at the bank, or at a light.

People here aren't that impatient but I still don't want to piss them off.
