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 dont know when it started happening or if it is just becauase the weather is cold but when ever i first start the car up and put it into gear and give it gas, it fells like its about to completely stall out and cut off, engine and electrical, because yesterday i was like screw it and give it alot of gas and the engine almost cut off and the headlights went off for a brief second. I dont know what to do to fix it. Ive had the exhaust system flushed and dont know what to do =/
