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.

2 days ago I went through a large pothole, then yesterday after driving about 20 minutes on highway the engine service light flickered. I also filled up with premium gas yesterday before this. Then I came to a stop light and the light came on and the car started shaking. Drove rough for a little ways then the light came on and stayed on but the car ran smoother. Pulled over and checked oil because oil pressure raised to about 55, usually stays at 40. Oil was fine, just checked tranny fluids, fine. Any advice out there?
