Chrysler Recalls 2002 Grand Cherokees Due to Misrouted Vent Hose
Engine, December 3, 2001

RepairPal Expert Overview

Chrysler is recalling 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the onboard vapor recovery system vent hose may have been misrouted, which can allow water to enter the canister. If this happens, fuel can spill out of the filter tube when refueling the tank. In the presence of an ignition source, fuel leakage may result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and reposition the vent hose and possibly replace the canister assembly.
