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.

: the contact stated while driving at no particular speed, the engine ran rough. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop for inspection and the mechanic determined the fuel injectors were blocked. The injectors were changed; however, the problem persisted. The vehicle was taken back to the repair shop where the injectors were cleaned. Again, the problem was apparent and the vehicle was taken back to the mechanic. During the last inspection, the mechanic determined the fuel lines were corroded due to road salt corrosion. The fuel lines were replaced and the problem was corrected.

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

Consumer states: The fuel return lines and fuel rails when they come apart the diesel and oil mix together and shoots out and coats the rear windshield. Also, coats the sides of the truck and all over the tailgate in very large amounts. This was 3rd time that took the vehicle to dealer and had it fixed.

Fuel was not flowing freely through the fuel lines to the engine. This is causing vehicle to function poorly. Dealership replaced the distributor and the fuel tank, but the cause of the blockage was undetermined.
