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.

Montana 3.4L V6

The ticking and whistling has been driving me crazy! What is it a count down? Its all coming from the side with the belts on them. We checked its not the belts. Who designed this thing anyway! You got to practically take apart the whole engine just to work on it. I'm really scared of the day the alternator goes out. Somebody please punch the designer for me!

Somewhere on that side is the loud loud LOUD tapping with the whistling. I tell ya it makes me think its gonna blow one day.. Thanks alot GM

Well the car runs smooth it is just this awful engine noise and the heater not only takes too long to warm the car up, it will completely stop blowing out anything once I turn my dial off of 5
