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.

There issue was intermittent so there are no defining moments that lead to the start of the issue. The vehicle would idle at 2000 to 3000 RPM while in park and at time redlining itself. If the problem occurred while driving the car would begin to accelerate and would be hard to brake. At stops the car would lurch forward. During these events the vehicle check engine light would not display and not code was recorded by the computer. After four trips to the dealership the power train control module (PCM) was found to be faulty and was replaced.
