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.

service people checked and charged system several times. coolant lasted less than a week and then back to shop. finally started putting in coolant myself. problem never shows signs of where it's leaking. added sealant, oil, more r134, still leaks out and blows hot air. no clue how to fix. can't find where it leaks and i checked with light, tightened the schraeder valves, both sides.
