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.

Easy fix. Check that all spark plugs and coils are in working order. Can cause catalytic converter damage if not fixed.

problem #1

Oct 302008

Silverado 4.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

My 2000 Silverado starts to shudder and surge at highway speeds, around 70 mph and not when I'm accelerating. Service engine light comes on and blinks but after a day will shut off. My brother told me its a misfire and check spark plug gap A few months ago the engine light came on and I had the code checked. It recommended a new fuel cap or evap canister. The light went off so I never fixed anything because it seem to run fine. Could these two this be related? It has new plugs, wires, fuel pump, filter, coil, rotor, cap. Any help?
