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.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 132010

(reported on)

Silverado 4.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


In shifting either between 1st and 2nd or 2nd and 3rd, the engine will sometimes race and I have to let off on the gas for the trans. to engage (auto tran). Besides being a Pain In The A__, it can be very scary. So far I have not heard of what could be casing the problem. Doers anyone know what causes this? I had taken it to the dealer twice when it was still under warranty, both times they said it was fixed, both times it WAS NOT FIXED.

So, don't bother to ask my dealer HOUTZ CHEVY in Gloucester Va. because they have no idea at all.
