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.

Ok yes you must change the timing belt, every single seal and valve belt , water pump and oil pump. On most cars you would typical only change belts, seals and water pump. However if you don't change the oil pump you will figure it out the hard way. Change the oil pump don't skip it. I been to many junkyards with new timing belts however the pump caused significant damage to the engine.
