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.

1999 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

okay I bought a 99 Chevy suburban and recently realized that the dealer had used the wrong antifreeze in it so my dad and I flushed the radiator and put in the correct antifreeze. Two days later there was orange antifreeze all over my driveway. I took it to a shop and they told me that the intake valve gasket had a crack in it and needed to be replaced. Are they trying to screw me or is this the problem. I thought it was the water pump or the thermostat but they said neither of those where the problem but it was infact the gasket. BUT after doing some research that also just happens to be the most expensive part of the three to replace. HELP!
