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

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Continuing problem with loss of acceleration/power but only when it is not raining or when the humidity is below 95%. this results in poor fuel economy. I also witnessed the evap purge solenoid making unusual/loud knocking sounds. Been to dealer 6 times for this performance issue. The only code found was for defective evap canister. It ran better but did not fix it. With my scanner, it takes almost a week to finish system testing on the evap circuit where it only takes one warm-up and cool-down to finish testing on all the other circuits. My suspicion is that the evap purge solenoid needs to be replaced. I'm tired of paying $100 diagnostic fees to be told "there's nothing wrong with the truck". I know better since I've driven and worked on my own trucks for more than 20 years now.
