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.

The first sign was water coming out the exhaust (white smoke) followed by a low coolant warning light. Then found oil in the coolant and coolant in the oil. Had the engine checked and found out either a bad head gasket or cracked head. Either way about $15K for a new engine.
