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.

2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 022012

Silhouette Premeir 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,000 miles


air conditioner didnt work in the front or rear and blew out hot air so i had to have the compressor rebuilt because it was leaking out the coolant, and i also had to have the the coolant line replaced that runs to the rear a/c compressor because this vehicle is rusting really bad underneath and the line was rusted through. This fixed the front a/c but the rear still blows out hot air. Also noticed once it got cold outside that the rear heater doesnt even get warm. It has something to do with 2 different switches in the rear that change it from air to heat, but ive never had it fixed because i havent had the money, so i have to deal with sweating in the summer and freezing in the winter because the front a/c and heat isnt enough to cool down or heat up the entire van.
