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.

2001 Mitsubishi full size Montero temp gauge fluctuates between normal to above high temp. i had the thermostat, temp sending unit, replaced. cooling system checked no leaks, hoses are fine. i had to take it to a dealer service center where they hooked it up to the diagnostic computer and said the temp. is normal even though the gauge reads hot and that its a bad gauge. i replaced the temp. gauge and still have the same problem. has anybody had the same problem i'm tired of paying for parts and labor.
