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.

2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 012006

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,161 miles


: the contact stated while driving 40 mph, the vehicle lost power without warning. No dash panel lights illuminated to indicate a failure. The engine was easily restarted, but the vehicle was taken to a dealer for inspection. A diagnostic test was performed which indicated the fuel relay connector hose was loose. Although this was repaired, the problem persisted. The vehicle is currently at the dealership awaiting further inspection. Updated on 05/16/2006. The brakes pulsated while braking. The dealer replaced the rotors because the were pitted and warped. They also replaced the rear brakes.

problem #1

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,965 miles
: the contact stated, intermittently, the vehicle stalled at any speed. Once, the battery light illuminated then the vehicle stalled. The other times, the check engine light illuminated prior to the vehicle stalling. The vehicle did restart each time. The dealership cleaned the map sensor connector; this did not correct the problem.
