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 #1

May 202009

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

This problem is driving me insane. The truck runs awesome first thing in the morning. After i drive it and get it warmed up it starts to act up. When i pull up to a stop light or a stop sign the truck acts like it wants to stall out. So I'll have to give it a little gas with my other foot on the brake to keep it going but when i take off and clear it out it won't do it again for a little while. It just acts like its not getting enough gas or it's bad gas.I don't know if somethings plugged up, or maybe the throttle positioning sensor is going out. I have no idea what the problem is. If anybody could help me troubleshoot this it would be greatly appreciated.
