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.

It starts a little while ago but only use to happen around the 90km mark..Didn't realize it was doing any other time..Now its all the time and always around the 2000revs mark. doesn't matter what speed and only when i am trying to get a bit more speed happening, never slowing down..It starts to feel like its chocking for petrol. it does this pulling chugging thing. Sometimes its much more jarring than other times. can be quite a powerful jarring other times its just a small pulling feeling. But definitely getting worse.

Have had it had the mechanics 6 times now and he is out of options. He has changed plugs and leads, coil, distributor cap, injectors have been cleaned but nothing seems to be working. I am just about out of money and

If anybody out there can help. Please do. Any and all ideas welcome.
