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.

1999 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 192013

Wrangler 4.0L I6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


Our jeep wanted attention because we weren't driving it enough. It developed a loud noise that I can only describe as some sort of distorted, dying bird. Using a stethoscope the distributor was pinpointed as the culprit. Just took it out, dissassembled and found some goop on the inside where the shaft is spinning around. Cleaned everything, added a little oil here and there, threw it back in the same way, and we are still running it 20,000 miles later. Perfectly smooth operation. Jeep has been absolutely reliable over the entire ownership of about 4 years and 25,000 miles. This was the worst problem its had.
