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.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012005

Silverado 1500 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


My problem started soon after the drivetrain warranty ran out. Because of the problems I have had in the past with extended warranties as well as the cost, I chose not to put it on this vehicle. I plan to fix it myself, regardless of the problem. I am just looking for some information before I tear the front differential apart. I suspect it is a ring and pinion noise since it only does it when the front end is engaged and under power. When going down hill in 4WD there is no noise. This vehicle is completely stock and has never been used off road, or abused in any way.
