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 #2

May 082007

(reported on)

Firebird T/A 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


When I start our Firebird T/A it stalls instantly. I have to try 3 to 10 times and then it stays running.

Sometimes it runs the first time but then it runs on less then 8 cylinders. I have to start it again to get it run on all 8.

Sometimes it starts correct the first time.

Repairs until now: new ECM, new ignition Lock with key's, new security module and we installed a VATS bypass module and the problem is still there. The experts in the Netherlands don''t know what to do anymore. Please help!!
