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.

My car has had this problem from almost new, It runs very good, but one time in 5 or 6 times ,it will not restart until it has set for about 30 minutes. When it starts it runs good as usual. Taking it to Dealers or other services just adds to the cost. Have had new fuel pump, new injectors,all kind of things , still no help. I cant even trade it in, no one wants a car that won't run.
