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.

The engine dies out while idling. The engine is warm (has been running for some time). It occurs especially when the A/C compressor kicks in - at this point, the rpm of the car drops and in many occasions the engine then dies out. Sometimes also, while traveling, when I press the brakes more to slow down to a near complete stop and then start picking up again, I notice the rpm drops to about 0.25 before my depression of the accelarator casues the rpm to increase again. It is not the usual as my vehicle is an automatic and the rpm doesn't usually go below 0.7. Would greatly appreciate any comments?
