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.

2000 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #1

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission

Runaway 2000 Impala with the 3.4 engine is caused by a flaky Throttle Position Sensor module (TPS). May take up to 3 years before it throws the code. Will do 50 mph uphill with foot off the gas. Replaced the TPS a year ago and has been running well since.

Just thought I'd send along the tip as it was a real stumper for this here shade tree mechanic.
