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 owns a 2004 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated that when traveling at various unknown speeds or when sitting idle at a traffic light, the vehicle would stall. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was also taken to an independent mechanic for a replacement of the head gasket and fuel pump. She was notified by the dealer that the manufacturer advised them to replace the timing belt in an attempt to correct the failure. The contact did not believe that neither the dealer nor manufacturer was able to accurately diagnose the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 72,000 and the approximate current mileage was 74,000.

Experienced delay in starting. Engine took forever to turnover. Diagnostic details revealed nothing wrong, in fact the car would start normally whenever the dealer tried. Problem continued and after two trips to the dealership--they refused to believe that there was a problem--I was told to leave it overnight. They finally experienced the problem themselves. They pin-pointed the problem--the fuel pump was faulty. It was replaced under warranty and problem ceased.
