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.

Heater control valve goes out a lot in these cars. The valve is behind the dash and the entire dash must be remove to replace it. This is a very time and money consuming replacement. I suggest only replacing valve by a professional otherwise you risk the possibility of damaging other sensitive parts in the dash. Without the heater control valve there will be no heat in your car. Beware this is a very very common problem in Galant's.
