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.

I have had to watch the level of the coolant every week and this has been going on for about a year and a half, a few months before that I was smelling the antifreeze. Then recently it has been draining in one day. I just replaced the water pump, it was all rusted, helped to slow leak to checking it every couple of days. Then found out that the heater coil needs replaced. Hopefully that will help the heater issue. Last year it worked in the beginning of winter as to slowly defrost the windows. Now it is just blowing out cold air. So, hopefully the replacing heater coil will fix it.

Seriously concerned, coolant needs constantly refilled and I am afraid that the antifrteeze smell is being atomized and we are inhaling it.
