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.

problem #1

Sep 102011

Celica GT-S 1.8L Vvtii

  • Manual transmission
  • 150,000 miles


My Celica recently started hesitating and puttering every time I accelerate, it will stutter for a few seconds and then slowly take off. Check engine light came on and my mechanic discovered that my car had a misfire in the first cylinder. When he took off my ignition coil he found a lot of water underneath the coil and on top of my spark plug. He replaced my ignition coil thinking it was a leaky coil. A week later my car started puttering again, So I remove the brand new coil only to discover more liquid. Now my car is puttering still but the check engine light isn't coming on so it won't give any codes, therefore pinpointing this problem is becoming a HUGE hassle. I've been driving my car for a few days since trying to get the check engine light to come on, but it's just not happening, and my car is a pain to drive when you can't accelerate without it hesitating....I REALLY need a solution for this..
