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.

All it takes to crack the oil filter cap is a slight over tightening by the pimply teenager at your local oil change shop! In our case a piece of ice from the wonderful Minnesota winters hit the cap and micro cracked it, making it worse was the auto start my wife let run for 20 minutes before leaving for work.

OIL FILTER IS AN ELEMENT STYLE INSTEAD OF A SPIN ON, IT HAS A PLASTIC CAP WHICH CRACKED AND LEAKED OUT ALL OF THE OIL SO FAST THAT BY THE TIME YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON THE ENGINE IS BLOWN.
