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.

The engine smokes, especially starting up from a traffic light. One of the spark plugs had oil on it when I had them changed. I tried an oil stop leak product (Sta-bil). It made only a minor difference. I was using a quart of oil a week, now it's down to 20 ounces.

I am past due for an inspection, and it needs to be done in order to renew my registration. I can't afford to get a new car and doubt that I can afford to replace or rebuild the engine. I have no idea what to do.
