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 I stop/go from a light my car staggers. It used to not shift right and would take forever for my car to shift to the right speed. My dad put new coolant, harmonic balance, belt, plugs and wires, a fuel thing, and I think a few more things I can't think of right now...

After all this he fixed the shifting problem, but after he changed my coolant the coolant light is on and my engine light is STILL on its been on FOREVER whats wrong??????
