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.

Engine stalls 30 sec after filling up on gas! I have a 1999 Malibu bought second hand in 2002 in VA. Drove not bad so far; which means of course, replacing the intake manifold twice (this is a crappy job they did, shame on GM) and a few other little things. Since two months ago a new one came up: every time I fill it up on gas, after I drive away from the gas station, about 1 minute later the engine stops. I have to wait about 10 seconds, start again, then I have no problem, until next time I fill it up! It happened EVERY time since two months ago. The first time it happened I was rather low almost empty, even though I usually donít let the gas go that low. But now it happens even if I fill it up when itís quarter full. Even if some dirt got into the pump and filtering system, how can I explain that the problem comes up only after filling up again, and not randomly? Really annoying, and even dangerous! Like one guy said, next time I won't afford to be a patriot anymore and buy American, definitely not GM.
