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.

My check engine light has been constantly on. I've gotten it checked by 3 different people. I've gotten the same response from each. I was told that I had a misfire, I needed an oil pressure sensor/send unit, oxygen sensor bank1/banka, and that the oil was leaking bad from around the oil pressure sensor. I got the coils changed, spark plugs and wires done, changed the oil pressure and oxygen sensors too. About a couple months after that the light was back on with the low oil pressure warning. The oil was fine so I took it to have a diagnostic done on it and took it for a second opinion and the again needed an oxygen sensor and oil pressure sensor/sending unit. I changed them again and they used threading tape for the oil pressure sensor to stop the leaking of oil. I've spent around $800 so far and 2 months later the light is back on needing the same things, oil pressure sensor and oxygen sensor. I took it to have it checked with a second opinion and was told that maybe it's a defect in the computer system or something electrical that keep taking out those sensors because everything else is working fine. When I start my vehicle up from sitting over night, the engine light comes on and stay on and the low oil pressure warning stays on while idling. When I start diving the low oil pressure warning going off until I stop, then it's back on. I cut the vehicle off if I'm stopped at a traffic light then back on to finish driving. If I drive for about 15 or 20 minutes, the low oil pressure warning stays off until I start it up again the next time. It might be a defect within the system and hope someone will find the cause because to keep getting the same repairs over and over again is expensive. Its $150 just to have the oxygen sensor changed not including the part and the part is $65, and if going to car dealers is double or triple that amount. Problems from 2014 til current
