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 Epica Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 272011

Epica LS 2.5L 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,528 miles


I started the engine, and it run very roughly. The check engine flash and stay on. I check the codes, it's a random misfire, a cylinder 2 misfire, and cylinder 5 misfire. I drive few kms and after stop, I put gear on reverse and engine stalls. I start again and it stalls in reverse again. Finally I press on the gas to avoid stalling. I check the oil, level is very low. I have the car tested by a good mechanic, he told me that compression was 60 psi instead of 100 psi. It's a frequent problems on Epica with the 2.5L engine. So the piston rings on clynder is damaged and I need a new engine. It's not a good engine. It also burn oil, all the plugs were fouled of oil.
