car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Chevrolet Cobalt

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt. My 2006 chevy Cobalt ss supercharged started malfunctioning in Feb 2013 driving the hwy the car would jolt as if it was running out of gas same thing occurred on April 2013. The big problem happened sept 2013, driving 75 on the fwy my Cobalt started to jolt and loose power and the speed started slowing down all the way to 30mpg I was barley able to make my way through traffic to get to the side of the road, once pulled over my Cobalt didn't want to start and when it did it would only go about 100 feet and slow down then turn off. Since then my Cobalt has not been able to function properly. At low rpm's it dies off. Since that day my boost gauge doesn't work. My mpg's have dramatically fell about 10, ill fill up half the tank and the next thing you know it drops to empty. Also while driving when I hit pot holes the car turns off. It has a hard time starting up. Ive read through the forums and other people have had this problem. Is there a recall for this yet and if not who not?! wouldn't you think cars failing on the fwy is a major red flag?. This other fuel system tank mounting problem happened on 02/08/2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Chrysler Town & Country

The car involved is a 2004 Chrysler town and country. We have been having isssues with the car. The problem started with not being ablet o fill the tank it the fuel dispenser would shut off as the gas would backup. Then that went away. The new issue started. After a full fill up of the tank , and driving about a mile or so, the vehicle shuts off. On 5/2/2014 it happened again after full fillup. I filled up the tank. Drove about a mile and was at a turn and the car shut off. I lost control of my steering as it locked up due to engine being off. Luckily I was able to stop the car just before it hit the guard rail at the turn. This problem has been going on for about 6 months and this was the closest coming to an accident. It has shut off on the freeway as well when we took long trips. Created a dangerous situation since we loose steering wheel control. The way to get back is to put car in neutral (while it is moving) and turn the car on and then shit it to drive. This other fuel system tank mounting problem happened on Fri., May. 2, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Chrysler 300

The car involved is a 2005 Chrysler 300. On January 8, 2014 at approx 2:45 pm I filled up with gas and continued home 1 block, as I entered my underground parking garage my car stalled, as I started it up, I heard liquid, I attempted to drive it in the garage to check it out, however it kept stalling. I called my mechanic and he came the next morning to check it out, and managed to get it to the shop. It took 2 days to figure out what was wrong, no code came up as it was checked via computer. It turned out that the rotator valve attached to the gas tank was stuck/broken and required a new gas tank, the gas went into the charcoal cannister, also needed to be replaced and 2 new fuel pumps as well. I researched the internet and have seen hundred if not more complaints about the same issue happening to others, this cost me $2400. 00 just for getting gas. I also saw issues reported for the inner tie rod and that was confirmed bad by my mechanic as well and had to be replaced. I have attempted to call Chrysler several times leaving a message and to date have not received a call back. I feel this was not some small routine repair bill and with the amounts of complaints with the same issue, chyrsler should of made the repairs or reimburse the damages, numerous years of this model and several other Chrysler Dodge makes and models have had the same complaints-maybe a recall should of taken place. I would appreciate this being looked into if there is any option for a reimbursement in regards to this matter. Had I continued to drive on the route 62 at 45mph this could have caused an accident as I stalled driving. It was 01/08/14 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue happened.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Dodge Durango

The car is a 2008 Dodge Durango. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1D8HB48N78_. Beginning with the first time I filled the tank, when the fuel fuller nozzle is set to auto fill, when the filler clicks off, fuel gushes back out of the tank and down the side of the car and all over the ground. I was standing too close and my pants leg got soaked to the point that my skin burned from the presence of gasoline. [I'm glad that I quit smoking in 1984 now for an additional reason. ] the next time I filled the tank, I watched the volume delivered and stopped the flow about two gallons before full and gently pumped the last amount in. When it was full, it burped out about a pint and a half anyway. This is a real safety hazard. I can't believe they recalled the 2005 for this issue and didn't fix the real problem! this problem needs to be addressed before someone bets burned. This other fuel system tank mounting problem happened on Jun. 3, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Dodge Stratus

The vehicle involved was a 2004 Dodge Stratus. Car is driven on regular city streets and freeways. Roads I drive are paved - no country, dusty roads and area isn't heavy in pollution. I purchase my gas from shell or chevron and refill at 1/4 to 1/3 tank to reduce chance of picking up sediment from fuel tank. Noticed while driving on freeway. That car would drop in speed from 60 mph to 20 rather quickly and then forget about going up a hill. I was also getting 8-10 mpg. A couple weeks later I noticed even on level city streets the loss of power. Car was diagnosed as catalyctic converter and with California emission regulations the cost of parts and labor was $ 1,600. 00. A year later, I noticed some loss of power and increased fuel consumption. Car was diagnosed to need cat converter replaced again and paid another $ 1,600. 00. Also was diagnosed that rear mounts needed replacement and was wondering if this was normal. Very bouncy ride. The failure date was 01/03/11.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Ford F-250

The car involved was a 1997 Ford F-250. The fuel tank straps failed on my truck causing the fuel tank to detach and make contact with the ground while the vehicle was in motion. I had the tank and related parts replaced at a local shop. However, the mechanic informed me that the mounting points for the vehicle's gas tank straps were also rusted and new straps could not be installed in the normal manner. When the recall was issued I took the vehicle to a local Ford dealer that attempted an official repair of the straps but concluded the mounting brackets were too damaged to install new straps. Whether the defect was all corrosion or a combination of corrosion and the effects of the tank being ripped from the remaining mounts when the straps failed was not determined. The dealer and I called a Ford company representative who initially agreed to have Ford cover the repair of the vehicle but this was later rescinded by a superior and I left with an unsafe, incomplete repair. I would like the national highway traffic safety association to examine the incidence of structural and mounting bracket failures due to premature corrosion not limited to the straps themselves. Several local mechanics have commented that they see this very, very frequently on Ford trucks of that vintage. My truck will not pass inspection with the brackets rusted as they are. Given the seriousness of the issue, I believe this bears very close examination. Ford says it has not process to follow up on this concern. I continue to receive recall notices but they are useless since Ford will not acknowledge related damage, damaged caused by the defective straps and/or additional issues that very likely exist with the corrosion resistance of some Ford truck frames. This truck's frame has continued to experience significant frame based rust deterioration while other parts of the vehicle seem to follow a much more normal aging pattern. The failure date was Aug. 10, 2010.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Ford F-250

The vehicle involved was a 1997 Ford F-250. Driving the vehicle at a slow speed over a gravel road, the straps and/or their attachment points to the frame failed, allowing the tank to drop and make contact with the road. This was prior to Ford's recall regarding the straps and a repair was made at the local shop. Repairs consisted of a new tank, sending unit and straps. The shop indicated that the straps had failed but new straps could not be fitted because, either because of the mechanical action of tearing away the tank or because of deterioration, the mounting points were not in sufficiently good shape to reattach the straps. The shop fashioned an attachment consisting of chains suspending the tank from the frame. Subsequently, on receiving Ford's recall notice regarding the straps, I took the vehicle to a Ford dealer who, after an attempt to repair, indicated the vehicle needed more work to implement the correction. The dealer (and I) spoke to a Ford representative who initially authorized the repair but, when the extend of the required repair was somewhat greater than anticipated, was overruled by someone else at Ford and Ford denied the repair. The truck effectively could not be inspected in the future because of this defect and it use was lost other than occasional use on the property. Follow-ups with Ford resulted in their claim that Ford was only liable for the straps and not any consequential or related damage and no other recourse was available. I would like the national highway traffic safety association to look into the ramifications of limiting a safety recall of this nature to the defective straps only and not the consequences of the defect. I am also requesting and examination of Ford's willingness to send a vehicle back onto the streets with an uncorrected know safety issue. It was Tuesday, August 10, 2010 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue happened.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of GMC Envoy

The vehicle is a 2005 GMC Envoy. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1GKET63M65_. Fuel gauge indicated nearly 1/4 tank and the car ran out of gas. From that time forward the fuel guage would bounce back and forth from empty to full right after I filled completely up. It would start to work properly after about 40 miles or so. I was told by a mechanic that my running out of gas may have had an effect on the calibration of the level sensor since it was only doing it when it was completely full and then would work fine after awhile. The problem continued to get worse, it continued to bounce back and forth when the tank was full, but within a few weeks started to do the same thing once the tank got down to around 1/2 full. It continued to get worse and now continually stays on empty. My check engine light would also come on when the sensor was going crazy, and now that its always on e, the engine light is continually on. I have to completely fill my tank and set my trip odometer everytime I fill up so that I have some idea of how much gas I have, but it has still caused me to run out two additonal times since the initial time I ran out and I realized there was a problem. I have taken it to a dealership and was quoted a huge amount of money to have it fixed, especially since I have recently found out this is a very common problem with the sensors on gm trucks from that time frame and gm issued a recall notice. My truck currently has just under 117,000 miles on it. I bought it used from a gm dealer in 2010, and have not recieved any recall notification. This other fuel system tank mounting problem happened on Monday, Feb. 20, 2012.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of GMC Envoy

The VIN of the problem Envoy is 1GKDS13SX6_. While traveling on the interstate this morning, the speed on my 2006 GMC Envoy dropped suddenly and I had to pull to the side the road where the car completely stopped. I notified onstar, who performed a diagnostic test and indicated there was an issue with the fuel delivery system. The car would start up again, but only momentarily and the engine would die again. I had it towed to my home and am contemplating what to do at this point in terms of repair. There was another issue just over 2 months ago when the fuel gauge was not working and it ran out of gas. No indicator light ever came on. There was at least 15 gallons of gas in the vehicle today, as I had just filled it up a few days ago and had not traveled far. I have filled it up every weekend since the indicator light incident. About 2 years ago, I had to replace other parts related to the fuel. . Possibly called a fuel regulator?? which was mounted to the gas tank. This occurred at 37,000 miles. I was denied an inspection sticker because of an issue with emissions and had to replace that part as well. This issue happened on Thursday, August 23, 2012.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

The car is a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. VIN of the vehicle was 5NMSH73E1H_. Fuel gauge was not registering correctly the amount of fuel in the tank. We would fill up the tank and the gauge would read empty. Investigated and found that gm vehicles had the same issue in many models from 2005-2007. They were recalled, there is no recall to date for Hyundai vehicles with the same problem. This issue could be extremely dangerous, people don't have any idea how much fuel is in their tanks and they can inadvertently run out of fuel on the highway or on rural roads. I have the sensors that were removed from our vehicle. I am guessing car manufactures probably buy these parts from the same company. So why weren't all vehicles with this sensor recalled? or if they don't buy them from the same company then around the 2007 time frame a lot of sensors were bad. We paid around $500 to get our vehicle fix because we had to travel 400 miles and did not want to run out of fuel on the interstate, that has many semi trailers traveling it. This problem occurred on May. 9, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Infiniti FX35

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Infiniti Fx35. The VIN of this Fx35 is JNRAS08U04_. I do see multiple other owners with the same issues. Please find my issues here. . . . . . . Issue 1: the gas gauge improperly represents the fuel level in the tank and the following issues are constantly present: 1) a full tank is never shown via the gauge 2) the gas gauge sporadically jumps around regardless of the amount of gas in the tank 3) the "empty" light comes on when there is as much as 1/2 tank of gas. This is very dangerous for me as this is my family car and I have a 2 year old son in my vehicle a lot and what if my car would stall out on the highway?? it is a good thing that I am able to keep calculations on the amount of miles per gallon my car usually gets. I was going 30 mph and turned from a light and didn't realize my gas was as low as it was and my car stalled out, luckily I was able to get over to the side of the road. Issue:2 the locks fail to react to the lock unlock function and the beep sound doesn't go off. This issue happened on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012.

Jeep jk Wrangler unlimited with passenger side mounted fuel tank and drivers side mounted fuel filler neck has approx 4 ft hose between filler neck and tank. Tank vent return hose to filler neck and filler hose are inadequate engineered causing fuel to back splash every single time you fill the vehicle with fuel and allow the auto shutoff on the pump handle to stop the fuel flow. This problem exist when filling vehicle when it is turned off and when it is running. It is worse when running. In 6 years and 90,000 miles we have spilled hundreds of gallons of fuel at gas stations and we have even had this problem with a 2010 rental Jeep of the same model. A recall needs put in place before a fire occurs at a gas station. This other fuel system tank mounting issue occurred 02/20/2008.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Jeep Liberty

The vehicle involved was a 2011 Jeep Liberty. The VIN of this vehicle is 1J4PN2GK5B_. During fuel fill-up, directly after the pump automatically shuts off, a large amount of gas will spill back out of the filler hose. This happens at all gas stations. During the first time, I was standing right next to the gas and had gasoline splashed on my pants a shoes. I have to estimate the amount of fuel to put into the tank as to avoid spillage. I am afraid that if I go to a full-service station, the attendant will be doused with gas at my expense. It was Fri., Mar. 21, 2014 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue occurred.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Kia Motor Spectra

The car was a 2007 Kia Motor Spectra. The VIN of the problem Spectra is KNAFE12167_. Reporting 3 issues: ***fuel system: in July 2009, one month after I purchased my used 2007 kia Spectra (46k miles), the vehicle stalled at idle/low rpm while in traffic on an interstate highway. Once restarted, it continued to stall at every idle until a significant amount of fuel was consumed. Almost 5 years later, the problem is ongoing. Stalling occurs if the fuel tank is filled (to the point of automatic pump shut-off). The tank has never been "topped off". In August 2011, the stalling was so frequent and hazardous due to traffic conditions that the driver had to press the gas pedal down while braking in order to raise rpm and reduce stalling. The owner has had some success in avoiding the issue by fueling to no more than 80% of tank capacity. The repeated intermittent stalling poses an enormous safety issue, especially on congested roadways. ** bags: on numerous occasions, the passenger air bag indicator light has illuminated (indicating the air bag is turned off) while an adult was seated. ***gear shift and ignition key: beginning in may 2012, and in numerous instances following, the vehicle would not shift into park. Mechanic discovered a broken safety lock in the shifting mechanism. This problem was not fixed, but overridden by accessing the plastic lever underneath the console and pulling with the left hand while shifting. The ignition key gets stuck frequently (4 out 5 uses) even when the vehicle is in park. This problem occurred on Aug. 1, 2009.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Kia Motor Sorento

The car is a 2003 Kia Motor Sorento. My fuel pump was replaced in August 2013; not long after I began having fueling problems that have increased in severity. Any time I try to put gas in my tank, it explodes back out at me like a volcano erupting. I can't put gas in my car unless I let it trickle in and stop fueling in intervals. . . It takes about 30 minutes at least to fill my car. I'm tired of smelling like gas. This is dangerous and ridiculous and apparently a lot of other people have had this problem, yet kia has done nothing. Something needs to be done by kia to correct this issue. I took my vehicle to a kia dealership and they weren't really sure what to do (lots of help there) and wanted to charge me about $2000 to try and figure it out (the same amount they charged me to replace my fuel pump). I'm tired of being ripped off. . . . Can't anyone do anything to help all of us consumers having this issue??. It was Mon., Sep. 9, 2013 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue happened.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Mercedes Benz Clk Class

The car was a 2006 Mercedes Benz Clk Class. The VIN of this vehicle was WDBTK56G86_. We smelled the odor of gasoline in our garage, so took our vehicle to mercedes of henderson. We were informed that the fuel tank was cracked around the top mounting bolt and needed to be replaced. Upon further investigation, we noted that this is an ongoing problem with the mercedes e and Clk Class vehicles. The fact that the car has never been in an accident, this is obviously a defect in the manufacturing process. When researching on the internet, we observed numerous mercedes owners with the same problem. Does our home have to burn to the ground before something is done to have mercedes correct this problem. This issue happened on Monday, March 3, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Mitsubishi Eclipse

The car involved is a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse spyder. The fuel filler neck rusts severely around the passenger rear tire causing large amounts of fuel to leak on the ground and gasoline vapors to escape. The filler neck assembly is constructed out of metal and includes a large tube/pipe for the fuel to enter the gas tank, as well as several other smaller metal pipes. The filler neck assembly extends from the filler door, which is situated in the rear passenger quarter panel, down and across to the fuel tank which is situated in the undercarriage. There is a particular point where the pipes in the assembly make an approximately 45 degree bend, moving from a downward angle to an angle that is more parallel with the ground. At this bend or elbow, the manufacturer placed a thick metal shield, presumably to protect a weak point. The shield bolts to the body of the car in four places and cups the fuel pipes in a semi-circle around the bend leaving an approximately one-half inch gap between the pipes and the shield. This shield and pipe assembly is situated directly behind and slightly inboard of the rear passenger tire, however, it remains exposed. Because of the gap between the pipes and the shield, and because of the way the shield is angled upwards, and because there is no cover or other protective device to seal this gap, the shield collects dirt, debris, grease, and moisture. Presumably, the rear tire throws this foreign material around which then collects in the shield, builds up, and contacts the pipes, causing them to rust. Eventually the pipes rust completely through causing fuel to leak on the ground whenever the vehicle is refueled. The holes in the pipes also allow gasoline vapors to escape and impairs the evap system. Despite the buildup and continual contact of foreign material in the shield, the shield itself did not rust at all creating a perfect collector to gather foreign material and cause the rust to form. This other fuel system tank mounting issue occurred 03/27/2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Nissan Pathfinder

Vehicle is a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. Vehicle demonstrates and experiences the symptoms described in NHTSA campaign number 10v075000. Fuel gauge displays 1/4-tank of fuel present when this information is not correct. Took same vehicle to local Nissan dealer. Asked about this specific recall, and my vehicles valid membership in the NHTSA recall group. Dealer's service department ran a VIN check in "the database" and advised me the recall does not apply to my vehicle, even though it demonstrates exact symptoms described in NHTSA recall. I believe this Nissan dealer is confusing the Nissan "voluntary warranty extension" program described as, "fuel sending unit program" with NHTSA campaign number 10v075000 - the latter not a voluntary but government-ordered recall. In April, 2014, I was driving this vehicle with three young children through the I-64 tunnel under where the atlantic ocean meets the james river in norfolk, virginia. Our vehicle almost ran out of fuel in the undersea tunnel as I was relying upon the fuel gauge's report of just over 1/4-tank of fuel, when it was in fact, nearly empty. Thankfully, we were able to clear the tunnel and make it to a nearby gas station, where based upon the amount of fuel the vehicle took, we were running "on fumes" and could have run out of gas - thereby blocking traffic inside the tunnel. Component(s): fuel system, gasoline. This issue happened on Aug. 31, 2012.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Subaru Forester

The car is a 2009 Subaru Forester. The check engine light came on while driving and stayed on. That meant something was amiss with the emissions control system, probably a loose gas cap. I checked the cap, took it off and retightened it until I heard the proper clicking sound. The light remained on the rest of the trip home. Twice more before servicing, I repeated the process of checking the cap. Both times I heard the clicking sound. The light remained on. I had the problem looked at by a Subaru dealer. After 2 hours they told me I was either overfilling the tank - I never top off - or not putting the cap on properly. I told them I know how to put a gas cap on, explained how I do it, and if there is a better way, please show me. They only repeated that it must be me because the cap was loose enough to be leaking gas. Despite my insisting that something else was wrong, they said bring it back if it happens again. I will repeat that the gas cap was put on as properly as it can be done. There is something else going on here and it is potentially dangerous. I replaced the old cap with a new one and have not had a problem. This issue happened on May. 18, 2013.

This rust had also destroyed the protective shield that was mounted over the fuel tank strap ,to protect it from corrosion and physical damage. A gas tank falling to the road is a safety hazard.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The car involved was a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 3VWTL71K79_. Jetta wagon tdi clean diesel vehicle was being driven about 35 mph on busy road with full tank of fuel. Vehicle started stumbling and losing power. Within 30 seconds of stumbling vehicle then stalled. Initially was able to be restarted but was stumbling severely and was only able to creep a few feet before stalling. Vehicle was unable to be restarted and had to be towed 23 miles to nearest dealership where the intercooler (charge cooler) was found to have iced up and contain ice and water. This seems to be known issue with the vehicle as vw has a TSB out on the issue. The dealership stated that they actually had another vehicle with the same issue come in the day after ours and last winter had many with this issue. This appears to be a known issue and is clearly a safety issue if it can cause the vehicle to suddenly and unpredictably loose power and stall. Vw TSB # 21 11 06 / 2025464 references this issue. The failure date was January 4, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The car involved is a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta. Car engine stopped suddenly while driving. Drifted to side of road; car would not restart. Had to pay $250 for tow to dealer. Service person called to say there was metal in my fuel system/tank, but they didn't know what was wrong. He also accused me of putting the wrong gas in my car. I informed service person that it took 5 seconds on the internet to learn about the NHTSA investigation into the many high pressure fuel system failures that cause engine to stop running. Interestingly, he called back 2 hours later and acknowledged that fuel system and powertrain and other stuff need to be replaced. This is an unsafe car. I could have been going 65 on the freeway with a small child or other people in the car, all of whom could have been seriously injured when car suddenly looses all power and momentum. Many online complaint reports are for second failures, after repair. I do not trust the service dept. Of any Volkswagen dealer and have no confidence that the problem is eliminated. I am afraid to drive the car. The failure date was Sunday, October 14, 2012.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Volvo S60

The vehicle involved is a 2004 Volvo S60. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Volvo S60 is YV1RS59V42_. The car had fuel pump replaced on 06/30/11 and again (under parts warranty) after being towed on 05/14/13. On June 10, 2013 the car had to be towed to dealer again with fuel supply issues. After much analysis, it was concluded that the fuel tank needed to be replaced. The price quoted for the part was $2447 and labor $1400. The fuel pump apparently has an inner connector seal (or ring and clip) that is integral to the tank (cannot be replace separately) that was popping loose under pressure. After much debate with Volvo of north America, they got approval to give me the part at half price--still $1223 plus around $900 labor. In discussing this with the shop foreman, he had talked to Volvo regional people one the lookout for flaws. They were aware of this problem, and although it was rare it had happened on several occasions to metal talks that are 'California' specs. Although Volvo is aware of the problem, they have not notified owners or done a recall but are requiring those with the defective part to discover it and pay for repairs on their own. I think Volvo should refund my repair costs and notify other owners who have the same fuel tank. It was Monday, Jun. 10, 2013 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue occurred.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of BMW 740

The vehicle having this issue was a 1996 BMW 740il. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was WBAGJ8329T_. The gas tank started to make popping noises and thumping sounds. Then when I realized something is wrong when the gas gauge started reading 1/4 tank when it was empty, strangely when I was filling up with gas the cap was hard to remove and as soon as I removed the cap air was rushing in. I ran out of gas on the interstate without any warning managed to get the car on the shoulder. Later on the way to work I started smelling a strong gas odor I assumed it was the cars surrounding me. When I went on my lunch break my coworkers informed me that there was a large puddle of gas under my car, when I got back to work I started to investigate what happened and my tank was imploded and developed leaks around the seams. I find this a major concern since this is right next to a hot exhaust system and may cause a fire due to poor gas tank ventilation. I'm lucky that my car didn't catch on fire due to the amount of gas I lost and noticed leaking on the seams that are extremely close to the exhaust. The failure date was Saturday, March 1, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Mounting problem of Buick Rendezvous

The vehicle was a 2006 Buick Rendezvous. Discovered problem before an incident occurred but I believe this issue requires some attention. The steel fuel supply line on my 2006 Buick Rendezvous that goes from the gas tank to the fuel injectors has a sleeve on it, located beneath the drivers seat, that traps moisture causing accelerated rust and corrosion of the pressurized supply line. The vehicle is only six years old and the amount of rust around the sleeve is advanced relative to the surrounding areas. Without attention, the fuel line appears as if failure is imminent. While rust is inevitable and expected, this amount of rust in a relatively short period of time is surprising and, most likely, caused by the protective sleeve installed at the factory. It was 10/09/12 when this other fuel system tank mounting issue occurred.
