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 went to Aman's Auto shop in Newark CA. They replace the valve cover gasket. When I left the shop and got home, about 30 miles away, my engine light came on, and there was still an oil leak. I called them, went back to the shop. They said the oil was residual and should go away in a couple of days. They got the engine light off. I went back to work, but then went I went home, checked the oil leak, there it was again, and my engine light came on again. Now, I have to go back again. Help
