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.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012015

Avalanche V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,600 miles


Eratic oil pressure from 0 to 120 lbs occasionally registered properly. Encountered a stall after driving approx 50 miles with 0 pressure showing after waiting approx 5 mins engine started and oil press gage acted normally.

The mechanic I had been working with was not available took to another mechanic and he charged $480.00 to replace oil pressure sender and manifold pressure sensor this fix lasted one day. Took vehicle to a Dealer he kept vehicle 5 working days and said he could not find any problem or get vehicle to act up when I brought vehicle in the check auto light was on also. Dealer charged $220.00 and said he could not find anything wrong, he did state the oil pressure gage acted up the first day but he could not get it to do it again. All 3 parties working on vehicle stated a Code 50 showed up but no one could resolve it.
