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.

2001 Chevrolet S10. The consumer stated the throttle posted open while driving and the vehicle accelerated. This happened twice within a five minute period. The first time he thought the cruise control was stuck and pressed the accelerator. Then turned the vehicle off. The second time he did the same thing. The consumer stated there was a loose restrictive plate in the carburetor, he took the plate off. Since the plate was removed, and the problem has not occurred again. He had not taken the vehicle to the dealership, because he did not agree with dealer's pricing. He called GM to see if they would pay for the repairs.
