The male part of the fuel line quick connector was manufactured with dimensions out of specification. As a result, the locking function may not be engaged. The fuel line quick connector may detach and the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash. In less severe cases, a leak or fuel smell may develop. Any fuel link increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel lines to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin during June of 2011. The Volvo recall number is R245.
