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.

started using 1 to 3 quarts of oil everytime it idled for a few minutes. There would be a poof of white smoke from the exhaust then the oil would be down 1 to 3 quarts. the white smoke is random and occurs anywhere between every 200 to a 1000 miles driven. It seems more apt to happen when the car is stopped at lights or idled for a few minutes.
