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.

When you start the ignition the engine is hesitant to turn over and the engine light stays on. You can feel the car lose power (or cut off completely) when you either come to a stop or slow down for speed bumps and turns. Although i have plenty of oil in this car and no leakage (and just had an oil change no more than two months ago), the oil light comes on as the engine light goes off when the car does.
