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.

Car stalled. Will not start....I was told there was a recall on the fuel pump. I called and was told I needed the fuel pump part number. I called the dealer that I bought the car from, still making payments, and he said that he could not assist me because he bought the car from an auction. Please help me, I need to get the fuel pump replaced.

In April 2011, when I started my car my engine light came on. I had very little power on acceleration until my car hit 2000 RPM. A diagnostic showed it was a throttle position sensor. First occurrence was six months ago, it has happened at least 20 times since. The car will act like this for 2 days then work normal again. I have to proceed with extreme caution pulling out in traffic. I also take off extremely slow from any full stops I make. It is hit or miss every time I start my car.

Repeated attempts to tighten gas cap have failed, and results in the cel (check engine light). Since the cap's mechanism is obviously worn out, and this is emissions related, I feel that it should be covered under extended emission warranty.
