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.

this is a diesel engine. It starts fine when the engine is cold. When the engine is warm it will not start although the starter spins well.I have had it on a scanner but nothing shows up.It will start with a roll down a hill.It will also start if the diesel pump is cooled by pouring cold water on it. the following things have been suggested 1- worn fuel pump 2-ICU unit 3- Timing belt mat have slipped a cog but it runs well when going 4-Is there a heater in the pump which may have developed a fault 5
