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.

Protege ES 1.8L

poor acceleration, running roughly

This problem occurred because the fuel injectors were not sealed air tight to the intake manifold. By removing the injectors, cleaning the seals and where they seat on the intake manifold, and reinstalling, the problem was resolved.

Car was able to be driven, just barely. Replacing the injector fixed the problem.
