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.

I have a manual 1989 Honda Accord DX. It shifts and drives fine in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears, but a little while after shifting it into fifth gear, it drops out? what could the problem be? I've heard it could possibly be either 5th gear itself, the whole transmission, or a synchro. please help!
