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.

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 152010

Avalanche V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,200 miles


Last week my low oil level light came on. This is about the third time it has happened. The first time the bolts backed out of the manifold. Then it happened again thousands of miles later which I didn't take note of since a die test proved nothing. Now at 71,000 miles it has happened again. The Chevy dealer is doing a milage test. I was wondering if anyone has found an answer for this problem? I used 2 quarts in less then 2000 miles. I love my truck and don't want to sell it but I can't afford a major engine rebuild especially since I don't have an extended warranty.
