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.

Elantra ES 2L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles

So whenever i start my car my a/c works fine for a while. When i come to a stop however, the a/c stops blowing cool air after 30 or so seconds. the engine oil temperature dramatically increases too. but when i press the gas it goes back down to its original temperature and the a/c works well. i have a feeling this has something to do with the radiator sensor not functioning properly and not cooling my engine until the engine gets a little hotter which in turn affects how the a/c works. But then again i dont know much about car problems...
