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

Silverado 1500 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,800 miles


Whenever I gently push on the gas the truck will shake just a little bit and then go away. and then when im driving and stay at a certain speed it would start to shake once i hit around 1000 rpms. i went to the place where i bought the car and after spending hours and 2 days out of work so they can look at it (3 hours one day and 5 hours the second to be exact) they couldnt find a problem and tell me to try some other shop to look at it. so now im getting pissed off. so i went home and had a friend check it out and he found out what it is. when i reach around 1000 rpms the transmission fluid dip stick area starts shakin like crazy causin the truck's floor and pedal to vibrate and when i hold it steady the noise and vibrations stop
