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.

While in my driveway, I went to turn ignition on, and car would not start. Radio turned off. It was not until I floored the pedal that the gas and motor started. It happens off and on. Also the key and ignition switch entry area are extremely hot. I am worried this is in fact one of the ignition problems that Chevy did not list or is refusing to fix. Please help, . it is not the battery. Updated 12/8/2014

Key gets really hot and after I drive it for a while and shut car off and go to turn it back on after it sits for just a few minutes it will start but it will keep dying and then I have to let it sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes before it will start I guess the ignition has to cool down and it will be fine until it gets hot again I am afraid of car catching fire.

Caller says that while she lets the vehicle warm up it makes a boom boom noise from the fuel line or pump. Caller says it will do this until it warms up and then it stops. Dealer says it is a characteristic of the car. Manufacturer said the same thing. Caller says the key gets hot while it the ignition.
