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.

2002 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

Hello, my vehicle is a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer, that I leased then bought. I am the only owner. On 10-13-06, I smelled gas when I walked up to the vehicle to get in. I took the Blazer into mike shaw (GM dealer) at 1080 S. Colorado blvd. Denver, Colorado 80246 to be checked. Mike shaw found that one of the fuel lines coming out of the fuel pump was leaking gas. Mike shaw's service adviser (calvin scott) told me that they thought a rock hit the fuel line. The service technician (michael J. tymitz) doing the work on the Blazer showed me the leak before any repairs were made. The complete fuel pump needed to be replaced at the cost was $890.51. I asked mike shaw if GM would pay for the repair and they told me no. The vehicle is out of the factory warrant time wise, but only has 31,900 miles on it. I called GM myself and told them what happened and GM paid for the labor $437.88 part of the repair. At GM I talked to amanda markham, (service request number is 1-4384 25465). Chevrolet division, GM corporation, P.O.box 33170, detroit, mi. 48232-5170. Telephone number is 866-790-5600 X 11634. It seems to me if the fuel lines can be hit by rocks that a shield should be put around the fuel lines by the fuel pump. I my self, do not know if a rock hit the line or not. I would be more inclined to think if was a defected part. I know I am still out $452.63 for this repair. The possibility of a recall for this does need to be investigated. This could have been a big danger. Note: I do have the old fuel pump if you need to check it. Thanks. Robert lindsay.

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • 86,000 miles
My fiance had purchased a 2002 S10 Chevrolet Blazer in October of 2004 because he wanted me to have something that was safe and dependable to drive. Just recently my children were driving the Blazer when all of a sudden there wasn't any power from the motor. The Blazer stalled and my daughter who was driving tried to restart the engine when a passing motorist yelled out to her to get out of the car that it was on fire. The entire engine compartment had caught on fire from a faulty fuel line fitting. I was unaware of a recall to replace this and needless to say I am highly upset that I had come very close to losing two of my children. A car can be replaced but my children's lives cannot. This problem needs to be brought out into the public so others will know of its possible dangers. This time I was extremely lucky, but another consumer may not be. The same exact problem occurred on my vehicle that had been previously reported by another consumer. "if the fitting becomes disconnected while the vehicle is in motion, the engine would stop due to inadequate fuel supply and cause loss of power steering assist. If an ignition source were present, fuel leakage from a disconnected fuel filter fitting could result in a fire". well in this case the word "could" is replaced with the word "can". what does it take to get the word out that there are faulty mechanisms that can cause great bodily harm? I was never notified by the dealership nor General Motors Corp. That this was problematic. The vehicle is beyond repairs. I am thanking the good lord above that the lives of my children were saved. Even though I have contacted this organization, my search for answers will not end, I am also planning on contacting the general motor Corp and the dealership where the vehicle was originally purchased. I will not rest until I know that these issues will be strictly dealt with.
