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.

new fuel pump, new injectors but the car still needs gas to start...oh yeah and a new fuel filter ...so what the ^%(^ is causing this problem. if its not the fuel pump and the injectors. or the filter.

once running is fine...but starting means that i have too give it gas...

died in the winter before the pump was changed ...now it has run for a bit and now is sputtering before it starts.

its probably really simple but a mechanic will say that i will have to get like a whole new fuel system ..that will probably go in a another two weeks
