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.

THE SHORT HOSE WHICH GOES FROM THE TOP OF MY RADIATOR TO THE ENGINE IS GETTING EXTREMELY HOT, SOMETIMES I CAN SEE STEAM COMING UP FROM THE ENGIINE. YOU KNOW HOW FOR EXAMPLE AN OLD CAR WILL GET OVERHEATED ON A HOT SUMMERS DAY.

THE INSIDE TEMPERATURE GAUGE IS NORMAL TO LOW......... NOT ON HOT. THE REST OF THE ENGINE APPEARS NOT TO BE OVERHEATING.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS PROBLEM MAY BE? WHEN I BROUGHT IT TO MY MECHANIC HE SAID HE COULD FIND NOTHING THE INSIDE TEMP GAUGE WAS O. K, I BROUGHT IT TO HIM WHEN THE HOSE WAS NOT HOT I JUST DROVE IT AROUND THE CORNER TO HIM. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY HE SAID HE CHECKED AND COULD FIND NOTHING OR DIDN'T WANT TO BOTHER WITH IT.

THIS CONCERNS ME BECAUSE I HAVE TO DRIVE FROM BOSTON, MA. TO SAINT PETERSBERG, FLORIDA.. AT THE END OF NOVEMBER.

I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IF SOMEONE WOULD LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING I SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT OR NOT........... AND DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT THIS PROBLEM MAYBE OR MAYBE RELATED TO.

ALSO WHEN I AM GOING ON THIS LONG DRIVE WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MAIN THINGS I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT BEFORE I LEAVE I AM CONCERNED BECAUSE MY TRUCK HAS A LOT OF MILES ON IT.

SINCERELY, THANK YOU GEORGE.
