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.

So basically when my car is in park, the RPM's are pretty high up, around 2 - 2.5. This only happens randomly, mostly commonly after I've been driving around for a while and I finally park right before I shut off the car and remove the key. Not a huge issue since I never idle, I normally just shut my car off and I'll turn it back on when I need to drive again.
