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 have a 1996 Toyota RAV4 with 136,000 miles. Recently (10,000 miles ago) it started pinking whenever you laboured the engine. It never happens when the engine is cold. Is there a sensor faulty? is it fuel? What the hell is it. I'd really like to fix it. Or have it fixed. Trouble is, I don't trust garages too much!!! HELP
