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 left for more then roughly 8 hours (usually over night) and when it's cold, the engine will turn over for a good 20 seconds before slowly picking up speed and finally starting with a giant cloud of smoke. I think it's either:

a. Glow plugs

b. Injectors

or c. the fuel system (maybe pump or air in system)

Any takers on the most likely cause?.... Before I go and blow money on things that don't need to be done!
