Engine, October 7, 2002

RepairPal Expert Overview:

During manufacturing, the fuel hose connection at the fuel pump outlet may not have been secured properly. The connection could come loose when starting the engine or while driving. This could create a large fuel leak and the engine will stall from lack of fuel. If the engine stalls without warning, this could cause a crash, and a fuel leak could result in a fire in the presence of an ignition source. Dealers will inspect the fuel hose connection, and properly attach it if necessary. The recall began October 7, 2002.
