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.

My van was running very rough and I could smell raw fuel from the exhaust. I immediately suspected a misfire. I hooked up my diagnostic tool and it showed a misfire on Cylinder #3. I first changed all plugs and wires. Noticed they were all original. Still had misfire.

Next was the Ignition coil after researching, I found that this was a common problem. After replacing the ignition coil, it ran perfect.

I was driving my vehicle and it started to shake and the check engine light came on. I parked it for a few days and finally got it to a mechanic they told me it was the fuel injector even though the computer testing was showing a coil problem. They wanted over 300.00 dollars to fix the fuel injector. I took it to another mechanic and he determined it was the coil pack cost about 200 dollars to fix. I also know a friend who had this same problem with her car and then her air conditioner went out I haven't had that problem yet.
