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.

There is a oil leak coming out of the crank pulley, did quick research found out I wasn't the only one. There was a oil ring around the pulley where it goes into the engine and it needs to be a free fix or recall I don't care but why would I want to keep a car that has this problem. I also bought a new pulley for the car and checked on it 6 months later and the ring was there also.
