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 was driving my 2003 Saturn and when I stop it made a noise in the engine. When I went to start it, it turned over real fast and would not start. It has spark and fuel but no not think it has compressor. Would like to know if this car is under a recall for the timing chain. It has 107,000 miles on it. It seem like it would be very costly to fix.
