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 knock

I noticed a slight knock that sounds like a lifter going bad but honestly I don't know. It knocks at first but not enough to really be too alarming. After the car warms up it stops. I don't know what the issue is with it but hopefully it is something small. I was reading around on the internet and I heard all kinds of things. lol. I saw one comment on YouTube that kinda related a lot to my issue, it said it is a water pump bearing. So I might look into that to see if it will fix my issue.

My Jeep just went over 174,400 miles today. So anything to keep it running strong would make my life so much better.
