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 #1

(reported on)

Silverado LX 4.2 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles

Still won't run right. Runs for 5 minutes then shuts off. Runs for 1 minute after it starts getting warmed up

something gets hot and shuts off the fuel supply. I am going to try replacing the pickup coil and fuel pressure

regulator and see if that works.. Also replaced the replaced ignition control module.
