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.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 012004

Silverado 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 250 miles


The truck power steering doesn't work when the truck is idling below 500 RPM. This has gone on from 2004 until now and still has the same problem. I recently looked for an idle adjust and couldn't find one. This problem really surfaces when trying to back up a trailer

Silverado Z71 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles

Ive taken the truck to the dealer many times, they have no idea how to fix the problem. I was told GM knows about it, but doesn't know how to fix it. How about changing the pully size because when you bring up engine speed the power steering works.
