RepairPal Expert Overview
A fuel leak may develop from the fuel tank area.
Mazda will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning February 9, 2004. If you notice a fuel smell, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
The fuel sender unit may have been improperly installed in the fuel tank. As a result, a fuel leak may develop. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the top of the fuel tank, and if necessary, repair or replace it. The Mazda recall number is 1403L.
