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 #2

Jan 082013

Tacoma Tacoma 4x4 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 161,218 miles


When I put it in gear it kills after it kills I hear a ticking sound the ticking sounds make my engine flood out and at high rpms it starts missing. I don't know what's wrong, it just started that not long ago. If anyone knows what wrong with it please let me no so I can get it fixed

Tacoma 3.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles

In Feb 2009 the check engine light came on, I scanned the truck and got P0171 system too lean. I cleaned the mass airflow sensor and the light went off for a few days in the beginning when I would start it. Some people say change the O2 sensors, but I'm still getting pre check engine light gas mileage, which is good. I've had seen that gas mileage goes down when the O2 sensors are bad. (had an 88 taurus that did that)

truck still drives fine so until something else happens, I'm rollin' with the light on.
