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.

problem #1

Jun 152006

Sierra 1500 SLT Z-71 Vortec 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,315 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

GM HAS A SERVICE BULLETIN ON THIS PROBLEM BUT WONT FIX IT DUE TO YEAR (TRUCK IS AN 02 PROBLEM CAME 315 MILES AFTER 36,000)

ANYWAY THERE IS A BAD GEAR OR SHEAVE IN THE GEARBOX THAT CAUSES A STRANGE NOISE ABOUT 3 TIMES A WEEK WHEN YOU TURN LEFT OR RIGHT

ALMOST SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING IN THE FRONT NEEDS TO BE GREASED BUT IT IS CLEARLY COMING FROM INSIDE THE STEERING BOX.
