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.

Axiom 4WD 6-cyl

  • 51,200 miles


2003 Isuzu Axiom 3.5L 6cyl engine. Intake manifold burns gaskets and leaks oil in the engine. Isuzu claims it may be the engine block but has no recalls for this problem. I had the gaskets replaced 4 times before I realized it was a more serious problem this problem causes severe smell of burning oil and causes vehicle to lose power. Engine light remains on.

  • 90,000 miles
Engine uses a quart of oil approximately every 1000 - 1500 miles especially now that the mileage is over 90,000. Researched and Isuzu says this is normal.
