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 secondary air pump (the thing that injects air into the exhaust while the catalytic converter is warming up). They are a clam shell design (two sides). They are riveted together with pop rivets. Prior to failing it just coming apart you can install stainless steel machine screws and lock nuts. If you don't get to it before it fails you have to buy a completely new pump.
