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.

When filling the gas tank to full. Starting the car and driving it, the RPM's fluctuate drastically, and the car "bucks" at any speed (no particular speed, observed at a stop, accelerating, cruise control, 45 mph). Once the gas level is less than full - around 7/8 of a tank, the van seems to drive ok. This has happened on 2 occasions. (2 fill ups to full, 1 additional fill up to 7/8 of a tank had no issue). The second fill up was the worst - the car completely shut off while making a turn at an intersection. Happened again the same day, from a stop, accelerating to turn the car shut off.
