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.

problem #2

Occasionally at startup the engine will run rough and lope like it has a full race cam. Then unless I rev up the engine it dies. Also when in first gear it lopes and jerks when going about 10 mies per hour.

problem #1

(reported on)

Pickup LX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 85,000 miles

engine runs well at idle, then tends to begin missing , then serious lurching. Won't run warm at idle unless holding at 3000rpm+. Diagnostics says ignition misfire,,,,, anything from plugs, wires, to distributor, coil, etc? Can anyone narrow it down? Parts are costly!
