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.

I think there is a problem with the Power Steering Pump. I was making a turn and I guess held it to the extreme left for too long. This has never happened to me before and the cost of a new power steering pump is about $200-260 (dealer) and $80-120 (online) not counting labor. I hope I can fix it myself but does anyone know of any other problems that would cause the steering to become stiff. I checked the fluid level and the belt, the belt is worn and I will replace it but I'm not sure if it could be anything simpler thank!
