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.

Lumina 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 175,000 miles


For some reason and i dont know why my 1999 chevy lumina 3.1v6 has gone throught so many plugs. its not even funny and everytime i replace them either the car starts chugging or it cracks a plug and i cant figure out why. and when i change a plug then it runs like a dream until its like 5000 miles then it happens again and i spend another $12 on plugs and i even tried changing my brand from autolite to ngk and it helped but its chugging once again. it does not chug all the time but it will just start up without warning and i get teh error code that one of the cylnders is mis firing

if someone can help that would be great or if someone has any good ideas that i can try and my plug wires are not more tahn 20000 miles old.
