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.

2000 Saturn SL Owner Comments

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

My car will start fine after its been off for like 4 hrs. but if I just have to run into the store, or something, my car won't start back up after I turn it off. When it's on sitting at a light or parked somewhere, the RPMs rev up and down. It also revs up and drops and dies. I'm a single mom and can't have my car messing up like this all the time. And I'm really getting annoyed. I have had the transmission checked and it's supposedly on and the fuel injectors supposedly ok too. So, now I don't know what to do. The alternator is ok too. So, what is going on? What do I need to get fixed?
