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.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 052009

Silverado 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


When I started the truck it made an awful noise like the lifters were coming out of the engine and then the oil filter gasket blew leaving a huge oil spill in the driveway. I removed the oil filter and it was installed correctly, no double gasket. By the way the oil was changed 12/08/08. I replaced the oil and filter. When I started it, the oil pressure gauge pegged out at 80 so I turned the engine off Immediately. What should I do now? I had to replace the distributor a few months ago and I have had all scheduled maintenance performed.
