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 oil uptake tube diameter is unusually narrow and the tube and screen are susceptible to clogging. The oil uptake tube and screen clogged and set off the oil pressure alarm. The clogging in my vehicle was apparently due to the use of conventional engine oil rather than synthetic as to the vehicle specs.
