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.

I have a 1998 Nissan Frontier pick up truck. This is the second time that this has occurred within 3 month period. While I am driving at a normal pace the trucks accelerator gets stuck and then it just accelerators at a high rate for no reason at all. The first time this happened I turned the ignition off to prevent an accident. I was able to stop and I disconnected the Throttle Position Sensor. I was able to drive it home. As a result of the high acceleration the fan broke off and damage the radiator. I replaced the T.P.S. and it worked fine for a short while. Then it happened again. This time I disconnected the idle air control value and i drove it home. I ordered a new Idle Air Control Value thinking that this will solve the problem. I am very scared to drive this truck. I am scared for my family members to drive this truck. What is going on with NISSAN PRODUCTS????
