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 1500 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,000 miles

When I first crank up the truck it idles down like it suppose to, then it idles up high and sometimes it stays up high and sometimes it don't. There are times when I can drive it about 34 or 40 miles and it run smooth, then I can drive it about 2 miles and it starts idling high again and this makes the transmission shift rough.

Thanks for your help in this matter, Julius
