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 vehicle would not start properly. So I took my Aurora in to have it serviced and found out it was the fuel tank pressure sensor, which then I was told this defective part could have caused a fire. This sounds like a very unsafe part and I looked the part up and found out that it had been recalled at one point, just not on the my make of vehicle. Something needs to be done about this before someone gets killed.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora with a V6 engine that has the same system as the V8. The fuel tank pressure sensors are unusually susceptible to malfunctions.
