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 had another car (Nissan) the same thing happened to but didn't know the issue was due to leaking valve cover gasket. With it I went through batteries & altenators which tested bad, but they were the end result of the actual problem. IF YOU DETECT OIL ON YOUR ALTERNATOR, CHECK YOUR VALVE COVER GASKETS & replace ASAP before the leak damages anything else. Its a cheap fix that will save you hundreds of $$ if left unrepaired.
