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.

I own a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado truck. I have noticed a ticking wile the trucks engine is cold. I have taken in the truck for repair and my mechanic informed me that the exhaust bolts are broken on the exhaust manifold. This is a common problem with GM trucks and there should be a recall from GM to fix this problem.

Exhaust bolts on 2006 Silverado, 4.3 V6, breaking at 40,000 miles, creating fire hazard and letting carbon monoxide back into cab. Contacted GM, wanted to run diagnostics on broken bolts, ha ha very funny. Lot of good that would have done.

Normal vehicle operation - passenger side exhaust flange don't/gasket- do to a flaw in the design, the flange is not allowed to be tightened enough to maintain gasket seal thus allowing carbon monoxide/exhaust into the vehicle.
