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.

Sadly this is a reaccurin problem.It has happened to me multiple times in the past. For some reason while I have my foot on the brake the engine wants to jump around between 100 rpm all the way up to 1000. But if I put the van in neutral, the rpms jump all the way up to 1700. when i brought it to the dealership they said its my ignition failure sensor but I had it replaced last July. and something like that along with most electrical on the engine shouldn't have to be replcaed. It's quite annoying because I really like my van :P and want to keep it until it completely falls apart plus its my first vehicle so theres some emotional attachment to it LOL. I just wonder if theres anything I can do that wont cost an arm and a leg, to fix the problem.
