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

Apr 162008

Silverado Z-71 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 179,000 miles


This is more or less me trying to find some help. I went wheeling with my friends one day and ended up hitting a rock pile which snapped my drive shaft into. I replaced the shaft but now notice that it is leaking out of the back of the T-case and I am going to replace the seal cause it does not look to hard if i take the drive shaft and yoke out, but I also want to fill the T-case up, but I went to look under it and have no idea how to. I am certified in drive trains but just recently so i have taken one apart but never taken one out of a vehicle. So i was wondering if someone knows how to fill it, or if i should take it out and fix it. Thanks and sorry its not really a complaint about the manufacture its more my fault

Silverado 4.3 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles

I purchased this vehicle a few months ago. Silverado 4.3 V6 engine. At 1100 RPMs, no matter what gear the transmission is in, you can feel a vibration and hear the growling sound associated with it. If you coast and RPMs drop through the 1100 range, I can notice only a slight presence of either situation. It definitely is more pronounced when gas pedal is applied. I have a friend with a 2001 Silverado 4.3 V6 which does the same thing. Only thing I know to do is take to a dealership to be checked.
