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.

My gas gauge doesn't work and the only time it does is when the needle floats back and forth between E and F. I'm not sure why this is but when I research about it there are many of complaints regarding the same issue. I would just like to know if the reason is a faulty GM part or if this happens all the time.

Our car gas gauge moves up and down. I can fill it up, then the next it goes to E and the fuel light comes on warning you to get gas. The needle goes to full to empty moves back and forth. I saw this is happening on GM models. This is a GM. Is there a recall yet.

I drive a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix & in August of 2003, my "service engine soon" light came on..I took it to a dealer, faulkner Pontiac, in trevose, pa who stated there were "no leaks found & reprogrammed PCM with updated calibration." Then in mid February 2004, my "service engine soon" light came on again. My mechanic said it may be an emissions related problem & to take it to my dealer, in case it will be covered under the emissions warranty. (80,000 miles) I am presently at 44,000 miles. The light was coming off & on and on wed. March 17, 2004, I took my car to fairway automotive group, jenkintown, pa. They said after running a diagnostic, found: "diag scan found PO440 performed smoke out test found fuel tank leak! they said my car could have exploded or caught on fire! and this is not a recall? I contacted GM Monday March 22, 2004 to no avail, to my satisfaction. I feel I could have been driving a dangerous vehicle for the last few months, or even since February & I'm very concerned about this fuel tank leak. Of course I had it fixed by fairway automotive group, about $370 later & feel this should be a recall by GM. Your help is apreciated. Thank you dona.
