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.

Engine light coming on this is the second time I have had problems with this and it cost a big amount. First time paid for correction. Light came on again and had test on this problem and said was fuel condition pressure or mass air flow, oxygen sensor defected, ignition misfired-repair, fuel injection problem, I think this should not happen two times, I don't have money for repairs, check out for other failures it takes off then looses power can shut off engine for about 5 minutes and will start again and go for several miles and then start all over of loosing power now you tell me the answer? cant keep spending out money on a fixed income and cant trade off the car please help me.
