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.

After having my truck sit over night, when I start it up and hit the gas to go, the engine will start knocking and then completely shut off leaving me rolling, without power steering, down the street. I stop the truck, park it, and start it up again, and it will be fine until i sit at a stop light for too long, and then it will repeat itself. One dangerous encounter I had was when I was pulling out of my neighborhood. It died right as I pulled onto the REALLY busy road that has a 55mph speed limit. I had to stop it, park it, and start it up again before a car rammed into me. I tried replacing the fuel filter because I though it was a fuel system problem. It still has the same problem. I'm going to try to replace the fuel pressure regulator next....
