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.

when idle it jerks/hesitates badly. embarrassed when sitting at a stop light and my whole body is slightly jerking that I sing to have it look like I'm moving with the song. Had it put on the machine to see what's wrong and the mechanic says that he's never seen anything like this, all 4 cylinders misfiring. I've replaced the sparks and the coil packs and that didn't help.
