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 #1

Jul 222001

(reported on)

Monte Carlo

  • miles
Vehicle sporadically hesitates on acceleration. Does not matter if engine is cold or warm. Symptoms also happen at speed and it feels like the engine is not receiving enough gasoline to operate at speed. Engine has shut off by itself at idle in gear two times. Computer has not set any codes. Plugs and wires replaced. No help with the problem. Engine will usually turn to normal within 15 to 20 seconds of episode. During episode pressure on gas pedal does not result in acceleration. Mechanic reluctant to replace components (I.e tps, egr, etc.) since no codes have appeared and confidence low as to which componet (if any) is causing the problem. Problem particularly bothersome when pulling into traffic as vehicle will not always accelerate to speed as anticipated. *****dimsii IVOQ entry poster after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****764525
