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.

2001 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 50,000 miles


2001 Chevy Suburban with vortec 5.3 L engine. During hot days or warm engine, the throttle sticks in "idle" position, requiring significantly heavier pressure on the accelerator pedal resulting in a sudden and uncontrollable acceleration when it releases for the stuck "idle" position. This event occurs at irregular intervals, on the vortec 5.3 engine, as a relative has a similar problem with the Chevy pickup and the same 2001 5.3 vortec engine.

Engine shuts off during first initial run. If I leave the house and get to the stop sign. It will shut off. Even after the first few minutes of driving when I try to turn it will shut off. After the engine runs a while it operates normally.
