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.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 022004

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


I bought this vehicle new in 2000 and after about 60,000 miles, the fuel pump developed a whining noise and the fuel gauge would sporadically work. This whining persisted for years and at about 130,000 miles the fuel pump finally quit working. The entire fuel pump assembly was replaced and thus fixed the problems mentioned above. Now the only problems I have to deal with are the engine knocking when cold and broken gears in the transmission.

I have had the this truck in the shop numerous amounts of time it runs like sh*t. I had a fuel pump put on cause the other one was whinning and low pressure. They replace it and the fuel filter, 200 miles down the road the same thing, They refuse to replace it since it has pressure, they say they are supposed to squeal and whine like that!
