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.

problem #2

Sep 022012

Silverado 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 234,000 miles


When going to take off after coming to a complete stop, I can hear and feel the gears grind. My truck does want to move forward, i'm not forcing it to go i'm just worried that a gear might have gotten chewed up.

problem #1

Silverado K1500 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

Two transmissions in this truck. One quit working because of a $3 fuse. However, the guy I bought it from just drove the truck with no lower gears, causing the death of the tranny. I installed the second tranny and the lower gears in it did not work either. Finally, I replaced the auto tranny fuse and everything worked fine.
