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.

secondary air injection system failure secondary air injection system failure

The picture was a part of the whole problem. That is the Secondary Air Injection or also called "Smog Pump" helps air get to the catalytic converter to help it work IN THE FIRST 30 Seconds the car is on. There is one on the left firewall and driver nose of engine

I spent a month and over $500 and even bought a Code Scanner like the one used to inspect a vehicle.

PLEASE LISTEN TO ME Sell the car while your still ahead and don't try to prove me wrong by trying to fix this car. I had by buddy who knows more about General Motors than General Motors does and he was clueless.

If you have a Secondary Air Injection System Error Code. . . The only fix is to buy a new Engine

NOTE the 3.5 Liter TwinCam V6 produced by GM will MOST LIKELY produce this error. It is also one of the hardest engines to work on in all of cars world wide.

TO ANYONE ... Please call me if you have for some reason solved this Hell filled Ordeal. Joe - 315 447 3009
