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.

The lifters in this engine, are sometimes loud. It does not do it all the time. I have not had the car long, but actually I am afraid to drive it. The Haynes manual says that if the lifters in the car rattle, it is due to a defect in the oil pump, that allows air in the system and displaces the oil. I have had 3 mechanics look at it, one said the lifters are bad, one said the cams, and / oil pump. The other said try JB engine treatment in it, and it that does not help, I have a problem. It seems to me if it was the cam or lifters it would do it all the time, it doe not. They all told me it would be a "big Job" to fix it., Any ideas out there? would Synthetic oil help? Thank you
