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.

2000 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

After a recall for the head rest for a pinching decrepancy from the dealership. I noticed that the truck began to buck or stumble while accelerating. At first I thought it may have been something that the dealership had touched. I brought the truck back to the dealership and explained the problem that I had when acceleraitng. The dealer mentioned that either the intake manifold may need a new gasket or it could be the manifold wasn't flat causing a vacuum leak. The cost for the repair was in the range of $800 to a $1,000. I confirmed the vacuum leak by tightening the manifold which improved the performance and lessoned the bucking or stumbling of the engine. I opted to replace or repair the intake manifold myself rather than pay the very high price for the repair. Ebay has the intake manifold for $75 plus the new gasket, a tube of gasket seal plus a weekend of my time.
