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

May 012007

(reported on)

Silverado LS 4.8L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

The automatic transmission some times delays the application of power when starting from a stop. Other times, after sitting still for more than a minute with the engine on, like when parked at a project site, the transmission will sound and act strange when put into drive again. It sounds more like an 18-wheeler, with obvious changes in shift points and with a loss in power. The problem usually goes away after shutting down the truck for a few minutes, but returns often.
