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.

The engine quits running while driving at highway speeds without any warning. After pulling off to the side of the road, the engine may restart immediately or after a few minutes. A technician diagnosed this as a faulty fuel pump.

My 2002 Chevy looks like it needs a fuel pump. 3years ago I had this same problem and the tow said it was the fuel pump and I had the fuel filter changed now since then it ran ok. I still experienced hesitation but after hearing the complains. I want to add my concern.
