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.

1996 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 202007

Silverado 1500 5.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles


My 1996 Silverado won't run but when it does it burns out fuel pumps. I have replaced fuel pump, filter and sending unit and still can't get it to run. Sending unit cost me $350.00 and it wasnt money well spent. I wish I could find out what the problem is so I can fix it and then I think I will take out the motor and plant some really nice flowers in there.

Update from Nov 25, 2009: Took truck into auto electric and found out it was just the connector that goes to the sending unit and it would seem this is a common problem with this model. $100 to fix it and the dude said he would see me again in about 2 or 3 years to fix same problem. I can live with that. I would also like to point out my truck has over a million miles on it and counting. 1,208,xxx.x (1 million 208 thousand plus) rusting from the inside out but to whom it may concern, I WILL NOT let this truck die. (Try as it may)
