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 van will over heat when in idle. I'm talking if you stop at a stop light for more than one minute, I'm def gaining a bar. I usually stay around 4 bars on the hot and cold graph inside the vehicle. It only does this after driving it, I have to have 4 bars already and then come to a stop for me to gain another one. I can start it and let it idle without driving it and it never gains a bar. The mechanic couldn't even get it to over heat. He is stumped. But I had a sit on a bridge because of an accident one day and my bars made it all the way to the end where the H is. Yeah had to cut it off for almost an hour for it to cool down. Had plenty of clean oil and coolant in it so I'm not sure what is going on with it. Mechanic also checked thermostat and water pump and all possibilities he could think of. Stumped:(
