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.

2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #3

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles


I own a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 53,000 miles on it with intermediate shaft problems and intake manifold gasket problems. Both are apparently common on this make and model. Chevrolet should make these repairs. The steering can be affected, which is a hazard and the gasket could cause engine freeze up while driving, also a hazard.

Vehicle would overheat and loses coolant while driving. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop, and mechanic determined that the intake manifold gasket needed to be replaced. Dealer was notified and informed consumer that problem was not covered under a recall.

Lower coolant light come on because of poor sealant of the lower intake manifold. This resulted in anti freeze leaking.
