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.

When warm, there is a rough idle and rough acceleration but engine runs smooth when at steady engine speed. Dealer replaced air-flow meter twice, but that is very short term fix until problem resumes. Carb cleaner or injector system cleaner results in only a couple days relief. Car will buck like a bronco when it accelerates, engine-check lite mostly stays off.

UPDATE: Dealer finally discovered problem was arcing wires. Replaced wires and installed new plugs to finally fix the problem.
