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.

This problem came about when the weather turned cold. Reverse okay. Driving was a pain until tranny warmed up - it would not shift from 2nd to 3rd. Took to GM they determined bad valve body and 2nd to 3rd upshift valve(?). After talking to dealership employee, was told this is a ongoing problem that GM is well aware of. The employee stated the fix is to flush & drain tranny and check valve body operation. Luckily mine was under warranty which covered this. Also was told this problably would not have been noticed in a warmer climate.
