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 owned 3 T-Birds over my short lifetime, killed one, wrecked the other and guess what the one I killed. I ignored the oil leak, so yeah don't ignore it. It's a small problem, but it can kill your car. All three of my t-birds have started leaking oil around 100k, altho I haven't found the source of the leak yet, nor could a shop find the little bugger. I just live with it. In the big picture, it's a very small problem on an otherwise fantastically reliable car.
