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.

My car all of a sudden started to overheat, and the h2o sensor came on. I had my mechanic do all the normal fixes for this car, nothing worked. I called my brother he said try the simplest things first. With a car that old, it's possible that those are the original radiator cap and gas caps. Change them and see if that does it. If it doesn't, you waste...$3.00, but if it does work, you save hundreds. My very capable mechanic didn't even know about this fix.
