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.

Fuel gauge gives fluctuating readings at all speeds and at stoplight, resulting in running out of fuel once and a near crash. Also, I have talked with several people who have similar vehicles and they have the same problem.

I have been very lucky and not killed in an accident, my engine stalls due to fuel starvation. Investigation PE02066, I have had tune up new spark plugs, new throttle control sensor, and another sensor, fuel injectors, throttle body and still the truck does the stalling out. I feel that is a problem with the truck, and a real safety hazard. This is a daily occurrence.

- the contact stated thatthe 2001 Chevrolet S10 should be able to use flexible fuel. When the vehicle was taken to the dealership they advised contact not to use E85 fuel. The dealership refused to inform the contact of the consequences of using E85 fuel. The dealership advised contact if E85 fuel were used they would refuse to repair vehicle. The vehicle currently had 100000 miles. There had been no failures to date.

1)motor mount broke. 2) day after purchasing used vehicle for dealership, truck was in gear and top speed was about 15mph for about 50 foot. Engine would die then have a hard time starting. Happened for 30 miles. After that, after running engine for more than 1 1/2 hour, the truck would die. I have to pull over and let it sit for a few seconds before it will start again. Happens numerous times.

The fuel tank leaked gas, and has been replaced twice, but the problem recurred. This is dangerous because the vehicle can catch on fire. Manufacturer has been contacted by consumer.
