Engine, August 26, 2011
RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
101 vehicles modified by Roush Racing may develop a fuel leak near one or more fuel injectors.
What Should You Do?
Roush will notify owners of affected vehicles, though no notification date is available at this time. If your Roush modified vehicle is experiencing a fuel leak, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact Roush Racing. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
101 vehicles altered by Roush Racing to operate using the Roush Cleantech Propane Autogas may develop a fuel leak. This is due to improperly seated fuel injector retention clips. Fuel leaks always increase the risk of a fire. Roush will replace the retaining clips to correct this concern.
