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.

2000 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 182010

S-10 Pickup

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,000 miles


Had the truck since 2003, it started having transmission issues in about 2008, it would slip, or "Buck". I changed the transmission fluid, filter, you name it. Finally one day, when I happen to have the back full it wouldn't leave the driveway. No gears what-so-ever. Full transmission replacement, and it needs to go back because it still isn't 100% I swear this truck is nothing but a money pit.

S-10 Pickup LS 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 108,000 miles

It had been slipping for around 10,000 miles, So I got some Lucas Transmission cleaner and changed the transmission fluid and added one quart Lucas cleaner. I drove it for 1 day and then it died. I think that the cleaner sped up the transmission dying.
