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 burbon was hard to start and sometimes would fail to start at 1/4 tank or less fuel, few days later vehicle would start right up??????. Later driving down the road, truck stalled and luckily coasted into Chevy dealer in Ft. Smith Arkansas. 850.00 bucks later we were rolling again with a new fue pump module which later the car started with the same hard start to no start symptoms. I tried to start this vehicle off and on for next two weeks. finally I pushed it on a trailer, towed to dealer, and pushed it off trailer for dealer to look at. Service tech hopped in and it started first time.!!!!!WTH?they kept it for the week and dove it every day.They cleaned the injectors,and cleaned intake(130.00) and said come pick it up, nothing wrong.We paid, got in vehicle and guess what....it didn't start!!!!service tech was interrupted by me ..lol while he was working on another vehicle, so he came outside and it wouldn't start for him ither. He tapped on the bottom of the tank and the fuel pump started to hum and the burban started fine...the fuel pump got replaced free of charge (goodwrench lifetime warranty on prev. fuel pump work) keep in mind this is another dealer ,different town, so the goodwrench warranty on their work really works nation wide!) they did refund the injector cleaning b.s., and told me the dealer before ripped me on the 850.00 and said i twas really a 550 job, so don't always pay what the service tech quotes you!!!
