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.

This has happened twice in the last week. After driving about 150 miles in 90 degree-plus weather, my car has stalled while driving at a steady speed of 60mph. The engine sputters, like the fuel pump is giving out...then, the engine turns off while I am still driving down the highway. I have to pull over. Engine turns over, but sputters and turns off during idle. After a couple hours, the engine starts up just fine and drives for days with no problem.

The car breaks up on highway at sustained speed then starts to sputer and miss so bad it will not run and eventually cut off the check engine light is on and only starts when car is warm and ready.
