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.

well my car misfired once on Thursday and the next day (after only changing the oil and valve cover gasket) the car started but was repeatedly misfiring. we started replacing things as the codes popped up. spark plugs and wires, o2 sensor, cam shaft sensor and then crank shaft position sensor. after the spark plugs the car only started off and on. and now wont run at all. we had the last part put in at a reputable shop. this mechanic spent 10 hrs working and researching this and cant figure out what is wrong. this is the only car that has EVER left his shop not running an dhe has been there for over 20 yrs. any suggestions??
