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. Notes: The GMC Savana is mechanically identical to the Chevrolet Express.

Fuel line from gas tank to "quick connect" split near the muffler. With the pressure of the fuel pump, gasoline was spewing out of the line under the truck near the muffler. It had happened two weeks or so earlier but I didn't notice it because I'd had a gas spill from a leaf blower in the back of the van and thought that was the smell (even though I'd wiped it up). I went to my mechanic to see if he could clean the spill. He found the split that was causing the odor. It would seem to be a real fire hazard. The fuel line is plastic, my mechanic says, and there are very few available (none at factory warehouses).
