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.

After driving my car and turning the engine off for a few minutes or a few hours, the car will not start until the second or third turn of the ignition. The dealer replaced the fuel pump; however, within five months, the problem began again.

I have a 2004 Nissan Sentra that has the "service engine soon" light on. I was unable to fill up my fuel tank because the gas spilled out, even though the tank registers 1/4 to 1/2 full. The gasoline starts to overflow, therefore I have to go slowly which takes me 10-15 minutes to fill in the tank. Also the engine does not start until after many cranks most of the times when the service engine light is on.

There is an ECM (engine control module) recall on Nissan Sentra and fronteirs 2003-06. When this was done at the dealership, I was told I needed a new swirl control valve, (a valve directly controlled by the ECM) at a cost of $772. Should the swirl valve also been part of this recall?
