Fuel Injection Rail Problems in popular cars

Fuel Injection Rail problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Fuel Injection Rail problems reported in most popular vehicles.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Chevrolet Impala

The vehicle is a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 2G1WF55K71_. On 4/09/12 at approximately 18:20 I got in the car that had been sitting all day in the driveway of my home and when I attempted to start it there was a loud explosion and smoke started coming out from under the hood. After feeling the hood I opened it and discovered a fire on the top of the engine and along the back side of the engine closest to the firewall. Fortunately since I was home I had quick access to an abc fire extinguisher and I ran into the garage and grabbed it and put out the fire. After the fire was out I noted the entire engine cover and the top of the engine under the cover was in pieces all over the engine compartment and it appeared the explosion was inside the air plenum/ intake manifold. I had the car towed to my local auto service location via aaa and contacted my insurance carrier the following day. Repairs included replacing the air plenum, fuel rail, injectors, fuels lines, ignition wires, fuel regulator, and various gasket kits and sensors. Based on internet research I have heard of the fuel regulator drawing raw fuel into the air plenum / intake manifold via a vacuum line which results in the explosion when you attempt to start the car. It was Monday, April 9, 2012 when this fuel injection rail issue happened.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Ford Edge

The car involved is a 2007 Ford Edge. After driving the vehicle for approximately 80 miles one Saturday morning, my wife parked in the garage as usual. I entered the garage after the car sat for about an hour and detected the smell of gasoline. Proceeded to inspect the vehicle and determined that the smell was coming from engine compartment. I continued to investigate the source and eventually found what appeared to be fuel seeping from the fuel rail, also known as the fuel supply manifold. I concluded that the fuel was leaking in the area of the test port which is connected to the rail. I could tell that fuel was leaking at the point where the test port is connected to the rail. I had the vehicle towed to a Ford dealer, and I was told that the fuel rail port was not repairable and a new fuel rail was required. This was a dangerous situation as gasoline could have leaked out onto very hot engine parts and potentially cause a fire. It was 10/26/13 when this fuel injection rail issue happened.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Ford Expedition

The car involved is a 2006 Ford Expedition. The VIN of this vehicle was 1FMFU17536_. My customer called to inform me that he was smelling raw fuel inside the vehicle on April 13,2012. I told him it was probably a stuck injector. Being a Ford senior master certified auto repair technician/ase master certified for Ford dealerships for over 14 years I was aware of the injector concerns with these vehicles. I checked the engine oil to find that it was overfilled a quart and smelled of fuel. My diagnosis was correct #2 injector was leaking badly. I replaced #2 injector and changed the oil,found small shards of rust in the injector that could only have come from the fuel rail as they were too large to have by-passed the fuel filter. 2005 f seriesexpeditions/navigators had a recall on injectors and the 2006-2007 vehicles should have had the recall. This could be a potential fire hazzard causing major engine damage if it occurs again. Research online and found that thousands of Ford Expedition,licoln navigator and f-150-250 owners have had the same problems with injectors. I am also aware of a recall that was on certain Expeditions and navigators for a new fuel rail that was rusting internally causing the same problems but the recall just claims that the fuel rails were "defective". Ford motor company is aware of these concerns and refuses to resolve or help any owners of the affected vehicles outside the recall. If these vehicles are allowed to continue to operate without being properly repaired eventually someone is going to be injured or worse. I have witnessed engine explosions and fires caused by leaking injectors. This is clearly a manufacture defect and should be adressed by Ford motor company. I urge any Ford owners with this problem to file a claim with NHTSA as well as Ford motor company so they can resolve these concern before anyone is harmed. All my customer wants is the fuel rail and injectors replaced. It was 04/13/12 when this fuel injection rail issue happened.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

Gas/fuel smell coming from engine compartment into cabin of 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (2. 4 l automatic). Smell is not noticeable at cold start overnight, or after a couple of hours of sitting. Smell is very noticeable after the vehicle is driven to operating temperature and then shut off for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. The fuel smell comes directly into the cabin when the hvac system is set to vent, but not on recirculate. Dealer has removed and replaced fuel injectors and fuel rail. Smell still persists. This is a daily occurrence. The smell also occurs when stopped for any amount of time while driving/idling. The smell occurs when the vehicle's engine is off, but the key is turned to the point the hvac will turn on. This means the smell occurs regardless of whether the engine is running or not. The smell accumulates under the hood and is strongest near the passenger side middle. The smell is bad enough to permeate clothes while driving and to be smelled inside the house when the door to the garage is opened. It's bad enough to force parking the vehicle outdoors. It appears this issue is being discussed on the Hyundai forums website and most complaints are for the Hyundai sonata and sonata turbo, but the description of the issue and potential solutions point to the same cause for my Santa Fe. The dealer has acknowledged the smell, but not in writing. The vehicle has been in five times for this complaint - twice with work done, twice with no work done (claim was could not replicate), and once I was sent home before any work was done as the service representative determined there was nothing they could do at that time. There appears to be no known solution to this issue coming forth from Hyundai at this time. This fuel injection rail problem happened on Thursday, April 14, 2011.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Jeep Liberty

Hello, I have a Jeep Liberty 2002 4x4. I have been noticing a strong gas smell recently. The dealer found it's schrader valve leaking. I asked them to show me the problem. So, when they tried to start the car - the fuel was pouring from the schrader valve. I was shocked when I saw it. It's very dangerous. I was driving this car almost every day to go to work and sometimes with my whole family during the weekend. I feel lucky it didn't burn. The dealer said the whole fuel rail assembly need to be replaced, and the schrader valve can't be repaired alone! I really want to complain about this. I love my Jeep Liberty. But the schrader valve issue is a very serious problem and it could cause the fire, harm the life! also it does not make sense to me - why do you need to change the whole fuel rail assembly to fix a schrader valve? it looks is a design defect! thanks,.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Toyota Tundra

Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5TBBT4818Y_. I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra and it has a problem that when the car gets hot the engine will stall out and die without warning. It creates no omd ii errors and the check engine light never appears. The ecm fuse blows on occasion but replacing it does not lead to a running vehicle. It fails to start until the engine compartment cools down. There is fire from the spark plugs and there is fuel pressure in the fuel rail. We have replaced all the relays and fuses in the ecm and efi circuits and all fingers are now pointing to the ecm controller itself. We just changed out the fuel pump and are looking at replacement of all the ignition coils (8) and all the fuel injectors (8). But since all of these components seam to be working that would make little since. The recent recall for the ecm on the matrix & corolla indicate that there may have been problems with the manufacture of ecm units for a much longer period of time since my Tundra is exhibiting the same problem. This problem has been getting worse for over 5 years now and the Toyota dealers and other Toyota specialty shops cannot find the problem since there are no engine codes and the fact that it will start and run fine after it cools down. I have been waiting for it to die and not start at all to hope to find the problem. This fuel injection rail problem happened on 08/26/2010.

car   Fuel Injection Rail problem of Volvo 960

The car was a 1997 Volvo 960. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is YV1KS960XV_. Smelled fuel in engine compartment,opened hood and found a leaking fuel injection supply rail. Leak stems from the end cap used on fuel rail towards the front of the engine near the thermostat housing and proceeds to drip vigorously down towards the intake manifold before evaporating and dripping down onto lower part of the engine and finally the ground. I have found several comments in the internet forums related to this possible defect in the manufacturing of this part stating that the leak is located in the end cap of the fuel rail, and Volvo has a re engineered fuel rail that eliminates the leaking end cap and is currently offering this re engineered part as a replacement at a normal retail labor and parts rate. Since modern vehicles are designed to operate beyond the traditional mileage of 100k , the general public is not expecting to have such a safety hazard present itself by a failing fuel rail end cap, in addition the Volvo owners manual does not recommend any maintenance of the fuel rail at any specific mileage thus misleading the public by the omission that such a part should be replaced before failure occurs. In addition Volvo has re engineered the part and is currently profiting from the safety hazard that this fuel rail has created. Volvo has in the past and currently advertised itself as reliable and safe, thus creating a certain expectation of high safety standards and high safety ratings, and Volvo should (in keeping with it's public image) at it's own expense remedy this problem by conducting a vehicle safety improvement campaign such as Nissan motor CO. Has done in the past(NHTSA campaign id number: 95i006000) to prevent any possible injuries that may result from leaking fuel systems that have not been altered or modified by current or previous owners and reimburse those that have already replaced the leaking fuel rails at their own expense. It was Jan. 28, 2012 when this fuel injection rail issue occurred.

The vehicle involved is a 1997 Buick Park Avenue. Started to have strong odor of gasoline inside of car when engine was running.

This all happened one week before I was admitted to the hospital for respiratory issues. On June 4th was admitted to hospital with respiratory problems for three days in the telemetry unit for respiratory distress. On June 10, 2011, I took the car to my mechanic and he discovered a pin hole leak in the plastic fuel rail on this car. My mechanic said this is a high pressure fuel rail and gm made this out of plastic that failed. He said the car is can not be driven that way it is and that the part need to fix the problem is not available per the gm dealers. He also told me this part may be under a recall notice and that I should check it out. He said it was a wonder the car had not caught on fire since the entire engine was covered in gasoline from the leak from the fuel rail. I contacted a Buick dealership called grand auto, inc. In thornton, CO and talked with the parts department and the service department. I talked with the service department manager named brian vaughn and he and the parts department said there was not a problem with this part and they refused to even listen to me concerning the issue.

I now respiratory problems issues because of this defective part. It was Thursday, May. 26, 2011 when this fuel injection rail issue happened.

Most of the occurrences have been when the car was in motion and I have managed to get the car clear of the roadway,but three times I needed assistance to push or pull it from traffic. I only today learned of a recall possibly affecting my car,,,,more than 4000 replacement fuel pumps have been identified as suspect and I might well have one.
