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.

I was given this car by my parents with 80,000 miles. The only maintenance done to the car was oil changes. The car idles at 2000 rpms sitting still. If I lift up on the gas peddle it gos back to normal rpm. When the A/C is on and i pull it out of gear it dies. It also gets very hot when the A/C is on. I just replaced the A/C fan, Timing belt and water pump, Alternator and A/C belts, IAC sensor, ect.
