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.

4.3L engines all get leaky intakes. I had mine fixed as a condition of purchase. It is an extremely reliable bullet proof engine, but either buy it after the intake is fixed, or plan on resealing the intake at some point in your future. If you get a dealer to fix it for you like I did its a good idea to get a new fuel pressure regulator at the same time while they're in there, as they are not a trustworthy component either.
