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.

Gas gauge always says full. If it idles for about 5 min. or more it goes all the way to empty & the low fuel light comes on.

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L 3400 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 179,000 miles

Too bad there is no code that the computer reads so I could know exactly. I have to estimate the miles per gallon so I don't run out.

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles

Gas gauge would jump up and down and I would have to pay attention to my millage so I wouldn't run the car low on gas. I had to purchase a new fuel sending unit with pump. I had my mechanic do the repair for me so he could just put it on the lift and drop the gas tank. The sending unit and pump is all one unit located inside the tank so it's a pain in the a** repair.
