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.

bypass hose leak

remove alternator and tensioner. NO ONE KNEW THIS. I had to buy a intake plum gasket because people thought it needed to be removed. the hoses are plastic and cheap and commonly break. Kinda sucks. But, I love my car still. rides nice and my vortec makes it quick enough for me
