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

Express 1500 5.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


At first i thought tihs was an isolated problem so i had the tranny rebuilt and the tranny kept going, the guy rebuilt it under warranty 5 times, now i have a truck that's sitting there and i can't use, I read everywhere the 4l60e has many problems especially with the sunshell , I changed the VSS sensor, changed the TPS and nothing there are no codes in the computer i check all the wiring and nothing, all the grounds look like they are attached iam at a loss here, if anyone has any ideas please let me know. i love gm but this sounds like its a manufacturing fault so it think gm should pay for it, I hear there was a bulletin that they came out with but they won't help out customers, with a new tranny costing in the range of 2 grand to 4 grand not a lot of people will pay for this. GM should stand by their logo "Mark of Excellence".
