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 issue occurs mostly after start-up when the weather is below 40 degrees F. When approaching an intersection, or turning a corner when a full stop is not required, the engine appears to receive zero throttle input from the TPS. Then in approximately three-to-five seconds, the engine revs up and proceeds perfectly.

During one very cold winter day this situation did not disappear. Towed the car to the M-B Dealer and was informed that it required a transmission valve body replacement $4200+, as there was a transmission code stored in memory. Not an active code. Replaced the valve body and problem still exists.
