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, I've seen this posted on different web sites but never seen an answer. Initially, the engine wouldn't go to idle at all, dealer diagnosed and replaced IAC valve. Now engine goes to idle only after the car comes to a complete stop. Now they are scratching their heads and want to change the intake maniford gasket. No codes are showing, the engine runs and idles fine (when stopped). When spraying carb cleaner across the intake there is a VERY slight change in rpm (30 rpm on a digital meter). When decelerating in 5th gear the engine is trying to overdrive the brakes below 28 mph. Seems screwy to me. What do you guys think, no idle until you stop? Thanks
