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.

"engine runs hot & engine oil mixed with coolant reservoir (replace cylinder head assembly)" that's what it states on service bulletin 96-T-65B. From what I've read this happens a lot on 91-97 Saturns. our Saturn started off by having chocolate milkshake colored foamy-ness in the coolant reservoir (it's had that since we got it 2 years ago so not sure how long it's had this), then it over heated, then the low coolant & coolant temp lights started flashing, then the 2nd spark plug blew out 3 times now! If Saturn knows about this why have they not recalled the cylinder head???
