NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS

Potential Number of Units Affected: 493

Summary: VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE FUEL SUPPLY LINE COULD LEAK DUE TO CHAFFING WITH THE INTAKE MANIFOLD AND/OR THE FUEL RETURN LINE COULD LEAK DUE TO CHAFFING WITH A SPRING BAND CLAMP USED TO SECURE A COOLANT LINE.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL INSTALL A PROTECTIVE SHEATH ON THE FUEL SUPPLY LINE. IN ADDITION, FOR VEHICLES PRODUCED BETWEEN APRIL 7 AND MAY 22, 2000, THE SPRING BAND CLAMP WILL BE REPLACED WITH A SCREW TYPE HOSE CLAMP AND INSTALLED IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT CANNOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE FUEL RETURN LINE.
