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.

This truck will not start when it is above -2 degrees but will start if it is below that.Not sure what the problem is if any one has had the same problem and corrected it please let me know what you did. Other than that the truck runs good.Sometimes security light comes on also.

S-10 Pickup LS 4DR 4WD 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles

I have had problems with this truck since i've had it. I had starting issues one other time. The ignition module went bad. Now something else has happened to it. When i try to start it, 50% of the time it starts fine, and the other 50% it gives me a fit. When i attempt to start the engine, it wont keep an idle at first. So i shut it off and try again. nothing happens except a clicking noise, the starter not turning over. then i will shut the key off and let it sit for a second. All of a sudden all of the gauges will move to their maximum position on their dial WITH THE KEY OFF!! then i'll start it again and sometimes it gives me a couple fits just like above and other times it starts perfectly fine. HELP!!!!!!!! POSSIBLE COMPUTER MALFUNCTION???
