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.

SURE YOU JUST ABOUT REACH ALL OF THE SPARK PLUGS BUT GOOD LUCK CHANGING THEM OUT. I PURCHASED NEW SPARK PLUGS. I HAVE ALWAYS TAKEN CARE OF MY VEHICLES BY CHANGING THE OIL REGULARLY MYSELF, ADDING AND CHECKING ALL FLUIDS, CHANGING FILTERS AND WHAT HAVE YOU, I HAVE ALL OF THE RECEIPTS. MY CAR WAS HESITATING UPON ACCELERATION AND THE ONLY THING THAT I HAD NOT DONE TO THE CAR WAS THE SPARK PLUGS BUT WHEN I TRIED TO REMOVE THEM, I FOUND IT IMPOSSIBLE DO TO THE FREAKING HEAT SHIELD THAT GM INSTALLED. LET ME TELL YOU I DO NOT GIVE UP EASY EITHER. FINALLY OUT OF FRUSTRATION, I EXCHANGED THE SPARK PLUGS FOR SOMETHING ELSE. THE MANUALS I HAVE LOOKED IN AND SITES THAT I HAVE LOOKED ON DO NOT GIVE A DETAILED INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO REMOVE THE HEAT SHIELDS.
