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.

Upon starting the truck and driving out the driveway, gasoline started spraying all over the hood, the engine compartment and the driveway. There is a high pressure injection hose that goes from the fuel filter to a fitting on the fire wall and back to the gas tank. The plastic clamp that holds this hose up, wore a hole in the hose. The part number for the hose assembly that broke is 2390675040.
