Fuel Leaks At Fuel Pump Connection Causing Fire Hazard

Recall Details

The high pressure fuel pipe may leak at the connection to the fuel pump due to it being improperly installed or damaged during engine replacement. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pipe as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The fuel pipe that connects to the high pressure fuel pump may have been damaged, misaligned or improperly fastened during the replacement of the engine covered by a previous campaign. This could result in a fuel leak, which creates a fire hazard.
