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.

problem #1

Sep 192011

C/K 3500 6.6L Duramax

  • Automatic transmission
  • 275,000 miles


The truck wouldn't go into 4 wheel drive, I didn't think it was the transfer case because I had replaced the transfer case about 12,000 mi. ago, I thought it was the motor that put the transfer case in 4 wheel drive, surprise surprise. I got the news yesterday on the total cost to fix it this time, "replace the transfer case" ouch. This transfer case is supposed to be new and has the fix for the problem that Chevy has with it's transfer cases moded in. Three year, 100,000 mile warranty, Before I pay for the new transfer case I told the mechanic that I want proof that the fix has been incorporated into this transfer case. any idea what the part # would look like?
