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.

The PCV tubing which consists of rubber and plastic tubes completely degraded. This is the worst design ever for the intended purpose. The system is designed to capture crank case blow by which includes escaped oil and redirect it back to the engine. The flaw of this system is running hot gas containing oil through rubber and plastic. The hot oil eats away through rubber and plastic. I had to replace all of the PCV tubing (work done myself) with parts totaling $200.
