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.

2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 192011

Silhouette 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 210,000 miles

Wire runs from right rear of the ignition module (Under the coil pack) down the back side of the engine through the exhaust manifold (That's the problem) and to the rear crankshaft position sensor. This van has two crankshaft sensors. One under the harmonic balancer and the one behind the engine just above the oil pan. Real hard to get your hands on. You think an auto engineer would know that exhaust manifolds get really hot!
