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.

Sierra 1500 ES V6

so this started about 2 weeks ago truck was running fine then after a rain it wont run. i waited three days to try to crank it up again and it rain for short trip say 5 miles. the truck was burning rich after also. the next day it rained never to start up again. so now im stuck pedaling to work since the truck doesn't run. being poor and having car problems doesnt help. i dont even know how much it is going to cost, and cant afford for a tow to a mechanic. even if i did get it to a mechanic i dont have the money to fix it if it is severe. this has come at the worse possible time ever.

Update from Dec 28, 2010: ok so i did find out what was wrong with my truck. went through a tune up and the last thing we changed was the coil. there was a small crack on it somewhere causing moisture to get in after a rain. if you have the problem open your hood let air out for a bit then it should work for you. hopefully this helps.
