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 #2

Feb 022002

Monte Carlo Z34 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,400 miles


I have had the CES light tested over and over and each time comes up with no problem or different problems. even if none are fixed. So what is one to do when nobody can find the problem to really what is up with the car???????

problem #1

Jul 262007

(reported on)

Monte Carlo ES 3.1L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Fot the past 5000 miles my check engine soon light has remained on, even after the car has been serviced. I have repeatedly had it checked out and been told everything is fine. The light remains off for a brief time, then comes on again to stay. The real problem of course is that I won't know when I really do have a problem.
