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.

Had the car in the shop for repairs for poor fuel economy and the maintenance manual said to replace the PCV valve at 100,000 or so. I had 97,000 so I asked them to look at it. They said the PCV valve was fine, but the hose to it was cracked and bad.

After taking the car to the shop complaining the fuel economy was bad they said there were not codes showing or lights on. I bought fuel injector cleaner and put it in my tank with a fill-up of fuel. Within a day, the check engine light was on and this was found. Since replacement the fuel economy has increased back to what it was when I bought the car new.
