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.

I've seen on several sites for this problem that i needed the engine re-built. Nobody tells you to do a compression check and see if a low is low. A toyota mechanis told me I had a stuck compression ring in that cylinder. I poured sea form in all the cylinders and let it sit for a while to loosen up any thing that might have been gunked up. Then i put everything back together and started the car up and let it run till all the smoke went away. Then i pulled the plugs and did another compression check and all the cylinders compressions were the same. My oil problem went away. Why can't we get advice like that. Everyone allows wants to make money.
