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.

Impala Gold Edition 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


backfires when first try to start it, will run but idle goes up and down in rpms. seems like after it warms up it runs fine. check engine light came on once so i had it checked out. the man told me it was the rear oxygen sensor he also went on to say that it could also be other things that cause the light to show as the oxygen sensor. i would like to have any suggestions as how to fix this problem. i just don't want to start buying parts hoping that it fixes the problem any ideas would be appreciated.
