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 had some clicking when warming up which I associated to the upper (heads) side of engine. It went away in a few minutes. However "THE DAY" the engine quit, there was severe banging and no oil or check engine light warning. It just gave up. I was doing about 70mph on the highway at the time and fan and radio going so I might of been able to reduce the damage if I had heard it sooner. Dealer did replace the short block and had no problems until later, which I will fill you in on.
