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.

The air conditioning was working fine. then started to notice that the floor was getting saturated with water. Then after that the A/C was deciding when it wanted to blow cold or not. so I took it to a shop and they said the drain tube was plugged so they cleaned it out and checked the ac said it was a pound low on R134a. So they filled it to check it and it wouldn't blow cold but everything was in working order, he said that it could be the blend door not opening, climate control module problem or a Evaporator which will end up around $1,500 to fix the evaporator and time and materials for the other possibilities @ $65 per hour. I just bought the stupid thing for $3,000 and put an additional $3,000 into it and I can't put any more into it but I got two kids and a sick wife so no air means no fun for me in the car. Can I do this myself or what? I have basic mechanic skills, basic tools.
