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 issues

2001 Toyota Camry engine problem. Engine shakes jumps up and down. RPM meter jumps up/down at low speeds but no engine check code. Hard to diagnosis. Occurs at random and goes away by itself. I am guessing replacing spark plug and coil with wires might fix it.

Camry LE V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles

Bought this car from a dealer. Two years later all the coolant ran out, the engine froze up and I had to put in another one or junk the car. I'd only had it 2 years and opted to fix it. Since then I've had the check engine light go on periodically - and it is "running too rich," meaning it still eats oil, which gums up the engine, which leads to expensive repairs.

Toyota was worse than useless in responding, at least the dealer was sympathetic. Can't wait to be rid of it.
