Fuel Filter Bracket Mounting Detaches From Frame Causing Fuel Supply Loss And Engine Stall

Recall Details

The fuel filter bracket mounting to the vehicle frame may detach over time, resulting in a loss of fuel supply and an engine stalling condition. Dealers will install a reinforcement plate to the fuel filter mounting bracket free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The bracket that secures the fuel filter to the vehicle frame may detach from the frame over time. This would cause a loss of fuel supply to the engine, resulting in an engine stall, increasing risk of a crash.
