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.

Anyone who's coolant gauge works's now and then or has their cooling fans running more than needed, change the coolant temp. sensor (drivers side of engine, front, under/behind exhaust tube) and at least in my case, solved the problem. Advance Auto has the best sensor for the money!

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L 3400 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles

The cooling fans started running constantly after I did the coolant flush but I kinda am kicking myself for it cause you don't replace one without doing the other... In order to fix the problem, I changed the thermostat and the coolant temp sensor and presto it worked! Both are located next to each other.
