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.

2002 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

Malibu LS 3.1L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 154,000 miles


I Have a 2002 Chevy Malibu LS 3.1 I have had a radiator flush a new water pump and thermostat I also changed all my relay fuses. My fans will come on with the AC running. My fans sometimes don't work at all so that causes my car to overheat and releases antifreeze coolant out of my overflow. I have replaced so many things like: coolant sensor, relay fuses, radiator flush,water pump, thermostat, full body tune-up and front and back brakes replaced. Still to this day I don't know whats wrong with my car I have just had for a little over 3 months.
