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.

the wife came home from work and shut it off. i went out a hour later to start it and move it and all it it would do was start and shut right off. so it seems to have gas and spark and i have no clue what the problem may be. just want a suggestion or answer as to what it may be.

I have had diagnostics run and about 3 mechanics look at it and no one can figure it out. It will turn over and start for a second and then die. It doesn't matter if there's a full tank or hardly any gas. It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold or if it's been running for awhile.
