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 Prix SE 3.1L V6

I was driving home from youth group and my tachometer jumped, sounded as if my car wasn't shifting into fourth gear, I was probably going about 45-55 mph when it occurred. It isn't persistent and has stopped as of late. It isn't really bothering me driving, it just gets really annoying to listen to my engine drone on at 2-3x1000 rpms

Grand Prix SE 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 153,200 miles

the transmission has chirped since i bought it about 3000 miles ago. taking off from a stop it would make little chirping sounds occasionally. after i changed all fluids and filters and added Slick 50 as well, it got better and it seemed quicker to pull out of a stop. it is now showing clutch dust on the dipstick when i check it and it chirps at almost every stop. if i take off slowly, it feels like how a warped rotor feels when you stop only in reverse.

another thing about this car, it gets about 22 highway and 19 city which is a far cry form the 28 it should get on the highway. it is hot with its 3.4 dohc engine but maybe i'm losing power and efficiency through the fouled up trans. i dont know.
