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.

1998 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

Malibu LE V6

For some time my ABS light kept coming on but i fixed that by putting in new dash fuses for all my lights and that fixed the problem for that. Now i have another light that comes on that i am unsure of what it is. I did not get a owners manual with my car when i got it so now im so frustrated that this light keeps coming on and i have no idea what it is same with my check engine light. Both at the same time they come on and i know its no glitch in the system since i changed the fuses but this light is a square with a little water marking and a arrow pointing from the top to the little water marking. And i have no clue what it could be nor my boyfriend who is a mechanic can figure it out. Otherwise there is this squealing noise that comes from my belt its a brand new belt so i have no idea why it would be making this noise its been making this noise for that past 2 years. Any suggestions any boyd to what it could be?
