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.

Engine pingns while accelerating. This same problem was reported on 1-26-01. Response was that engine needed to adjust. Now the response has been that I need to use chevron fuel of which that is what I use for my truck. I can provide receipts of this if needed, but I need to report the problem since the service department at midway seem to think that is not a serious problem on the truck.M do gasoline sero.

While traveling at approximately 40 mph engine check light came on and, engine suddenly stalled while approaching a red light. Upon restarting vehicle, engine/transmission would not accelerate to any speed above 25 mph. Dealership has examined the vehicle, but could not reproduce the problem or determine a cause.
