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.

OMG....I should have read reviews before I bought this car...but I just bought this 01' Saturn sc2 and loved the look of it...but got it home and yes...2 weeks later...check engine light...eating oil...and now sucks...well I guess im on the "fix this and then this and then this" track now...started with adding "restore"...then thicker oil...then a fuel oil change im adding "lucas"....and 2moro im going to replace the pcv valve and look into how to clean the egr (since its not cheap to get a new one) and I guess ill go from hoping its not going to be the rings..the next thing is do the compression check and maybe that treatment you put in the plug area overnight...this not a mechanic but I am a pretty girl who knows alot of guys who know about cars which helps but still this last car was a jetta and I loved that car (wrecked it) man i should of just bought another jetta...grrrr...if i get this stuff to work Ill update this with that info for you with the same issues...feel free to give me some advice too if you have something that might help..thanks. :-)
