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.

It started out with replacing the exhaust manifold and that fixed first leak now I have water pouring out behind engine have replaced heads with gaskets bypass hose and water pump and still leaking how the hell can ford get away with making an engine that I'm sure they new would fail you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that plastic is going to melt on a hot engine is there any way of getting any money back that I spent. I still haven't found the source of the leak but still looking.
