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 #2

Jan 152008

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles


When accelerating at about 40 mph my transmission begins to buck. To the point of the "check engine" light coming on....and then off again. Changed fluids and filter regularly. Maybe I'll go aftermarket high performance if it needs to be replaced. Any others with the same problem?

Silverado 4.3L V6

When i jumped into my truck this morning i had a really time shifting it into gear. I had to literally muscle it into gear everytime i up-shifted or down-shifted. The problem ceased when the truck was warm.
