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.

Silverado V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

I have to turn the key on 3 times just to get fuel to engine seems like.

Unless the truck has been running recently

without starting the truck I can hear the pump running when I turn on the key, then I hear something like pressure relief from the tank area..... so I know the pump is pushing fuel, why does it have a problem starting?

Silverado Extended Cab V6

  • Automatic transmission

It takes at least two tries to start the truck, unless I used it within the last couple of hours. Its not the battery, If I turn the key to on without starting it, that makes it work. It feels like it isn't getting fuel on the first try.
