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.

I replaced the valve cover gasket myself. Cost a few dollars and a little bit of time but no real big deal. The gasket was cracked and would leak oil. It leaked about a quart every two weeks so if I didn't replace the gasket it would probably cause major problems later.
