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.

First I noticed the antifreeze level was going down.  Next I noticed a pink (Dried Toyota Coolant) stain on the engine on the driver side near the timing belt cover.  I pulled the timing belt cover back and the source of the leak was the water pump weep-hole.  I was told that Toyota is aware of the problem, and that the replacement water pump was redesigned to prevent this problem.  <p>
