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.

: the contact stated on four separate occasions the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealership after each of the first three incidents. On every visit to the dealership the gas cap was replaced. When the light illuminated the fourth time two months ago the dealer was contacted and suggested diagnostic testing. There were no warning signals indicating a problem except for the check engine light.

I own a Nissan Frontier SE V-6 3.3 4X4, all is original as purchased, at approximately 75,000 miles, this winter I have developed a loud ticking noise upon cold start up, after about 10 minutes or until warmed up it subsides and returns upon cold start up.
