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.

2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 012009

Monte Carlo SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


After driving a bit, the transmission begins to hard shift, and I hear a whizzing noise. It will usually begin after a while but doesn't stop unless I turn the engine off. Sometimes it will reoccur after restarting and at times waits a bit but its relatively a constant prb. Fluid seems to be full and I don't smell burnt fluid but it has been a while since changing. One final note, if I take the gear out into neutral, the car jumps while this is occurring where if its working normally, this will not happen.

Update from May 13, 2010: The engine has a power falloff as it gets to rev up in driving as if the cylinders are missing 1, 2 or 3. Sometimes will kick in again but its never solid. Replaced O2 sensor and TPS module, still acting up. Need hellp

In the chiltons book it says if you are having problems with shifting check your shift module out. But the Chevy dealer wont tell you a thing
