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.

Grand Am V6

  • Automatic transmission

well i thought it was my transmission at first cuz what it would do is right when i would start my car it would start reving up like i was hitting the gas pedal while in park and right when i would put it into gear it would stall and i would have to start it again, i think i may have fixed the problem though. i'll let you know if it makes a difference.

I will let my car warm up for about 10 mins in the morning, then i will drive and about 5 miles down the road, i stop and it stalls. It stalls everytime i stop and only does it while in drive. When i take off again to drive, it just barely moves when you hit the gas. i don't know if this is an engine problem or not but it only does it when the car is heated up for a while. it is a real pain in the ass.

Stalls due to low voltage. I bought the car used a few mounths ago with no warranty and I noticed the problem right after I bought it. When I drive for about 45 min straight the voltage gauge will drop from 16 to 13, and with all loads on and when I press the brakes, it will drop to about 8 and sometimes stall. I changed the alternator & that still didn't fix the problem.
