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.

2001 GMC Sierra 2500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012014

Sierra 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 130,000 miles


Exhaust manifold leak due to broken exhaust manifold bolt. I am the original owner of the vehicle. The vehicle has been regularly and properly maintained. I understand this is a common problem for this GM vehicle due to defective parts. I purchased this vehicle new from a local GMC dealer.

Sierra 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 70,300 miles
Engine stalled after pulling out onto highway then restarted, engine stalled at stop light restarted 5 minutes later, engine stalled immediately after starting then started two minutes later. GM recall #06083 crankshaft position sensor from Dec. 11, 2007 needs to be expanded to include more or maybe all 2001S with 8.1L V8 not just the VIN # that are listed.
