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 #2

Monte Carlo LS

  • 60,150 miles

The check engine light came on 3 days after I bought it. I was concerned cause the vehicle seems to "fight" me when I accelerate over 50 mph on hills. I took it to the dealer, and 20 minutes later they told me their computer came up with "Random Cylinder Misfire." Its just plugs and wires they said. So I hope this is it for a while.

Monte Carlo LX

codes 1107, 1404, and egg smell at high acceleration. replaced EGR valve, and both O2 sensors. still has check engine light on. Engine also idles with a little hesitation. Slight ticking sound from motor when at idle. oil changes always before time. found dirty air cleaner, didn't fix problem. replacing and paying is getting costly. any hints?
