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.

Trailblazer EXT LT V6

I have had my car for a little over three years now and has been nothing but problems. Shortly after I purchased the car I began to have problems starting it if it sat for more than 30 minutes after being ran/driven. It recently has become worse and now does it after every time of shutting off the vehicle. It struggles to start and constantly have to crank it with the gas pedal to the floor. An overpowering almost nauseating smell of gasoline can be smelt as well. If it sits for more than two hours it will start up no problem, or in the mornings since it's been sitting all night. I have already replaced a few parts and nothing seems to be working. I am really hoping it's not an electrical problem.
