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 just had the Crank Shaft replaced and the starter, and the crank shaft censor replaced and the flywheel, and then it just stopped starting! The engine would sound like it was going to turn over, but it never would fully make it over! I was getting fuel in the engine, i got spark and i was getting air! (the 3 major components to starting the vehicle, however it just wouldn't go! I took it to 3 dealerships in MICHIGAN and all of them came back with diagnoses of cleared reports or 1 told me it was the CPU, so i Replaced that and still to this day I have replaced almost everything under that hood and the CPU and still it just wont start up! Here is a list of parts replaced in the last 3 years: (starting with the initial problem) 1. Crank Shaft 2. Crank Shaft Censor 3. Starter 4. Cam Position Censor 5. all 6 Spark Plugs 6. Alll SPark Plug Wires 7. Timing Chain 8. Coil packs 9. Battery (3 times) 10. CPU 11.
