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.

Silverado

  • 68,500 miles
I bought this vehicle used with about 66,000 miles on the odometer. Shortly thereafter, the check engine light came on, and I found an evaporative emissions code stored. I cleared the code and went about my business. Not long after, I went to fill the truck with fuel and gasoline spilled out from the top of the gas tank without coming up the filling neck. When I got around to taking the tank off the trunk to look for the cause of the issue, I found that the top plate of the fuel sending unit had rusted through and left an approximate 1" X 1/2" hole where fuel and vapor was able to escape. As far as I know, this was the original sending unit for the vehicle. I am replacing the unit with a delphi sending unit with a plastic top; hoping that this will prevent future leaks of this nature.
