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 #3

Monte Carlo SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 155,000 miles

The car was cutting out when going down the highway and when taking off from a stop. Maybe once a week for months then almost everyday. I took it to a transmission shop and they mentioned it might be the mass air flow senor if I was using a K and N air filter or an air filter that let in more air or larger particles into the engine. But after driving it the transmission guy said he would need a rebuilt or install a new transmission. I changed the mass air flow sensor and the issue went away. :)

Monte Carlo SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission

After driving a few minutes, the power drops off as if 1,2 or 3 cylinders arent working. May continue for a while or resolve only to do it again. Its dangerous. Have changed upper o2 sensor ad tps module, no change
