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 #3

Impala 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,741 miles


Hey Charlie M. does your car stall only when it's hot out or all the time because mine only stalls when it's hot and humid and I have been driving for about 15 - 20 minutes and I called the dealer and they said that they have been having trouble with that same thing and they recommended the Ignition Control Module or (ICM) which is located under the coil packs you should be able to see 2 wire connectors from the drivers side the coil packs are located near the back of the engine on the top well on my 3.4L V6 but the 3.8L V6 I'm not sure but I don't think isn't much different. P.S. I may be trying the Ignition Control Module as soon as I do I will let you know how it turned out.

My car starts fine most of the time, but once the car has been running for a while, sometimes it stalls before starting. Very embarrasing when people are around. Does anyone know what this is?
