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.

2009 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

Chevy express 4500 diesel cutaway. Fuel oil heater (foh) is an auxiliary heater located under the cab of the vehicle and exhausts in the same area. Odor of partially burned fuel and a strong exhaust small would enter the cab of the vehicle during low speed operation in cold weather. Due to the intermittent character of the odor a home co monitor was placed in the cab of the vehicle which did alarm, prompting the vehicle to be removed from service and sent for repair. The foh required replacement.
