I had the check engine light come on. I checked it on a computer and it said misfire on cylinder one. It was running very rough and a family friend is a service manager for a Chrysler dealership on the mainland, I live in hawaii. He said that it sounds like it very likely could be related to recall # 98v184000. I took it into, cutter Dodge Chrysler Jeep in pearl city hawaii, in hopes that they would be able to take care of the recall. A few days later they told me there was a problem with the wires and spark plugs and to come and pick up my car. When I arrived at the dealership the car was not running, granted when I dropped it off it was running rough but it was running nevertheless. I had to have it towed off of the lot and when I took it back to my house I changed the spark plugs and wires. I still had a check engine light on, when I drove the car for a couple of days. I know that it may take a couple of trips to reset the computer. When the check engine light would not go off I wanted to check and see how the fuel injectors were. That is when I found that there was gas under the fuel rail, and the fuel rail has cracks around where the fuel injectors sit. I took the parts to the Chrysler dealership and they had the parts for a couple of weeks it went from the gentleman that I was working with in the service department to his manager to tom smith who ultimately said he would not help me with this recall. The fuel injectors are definitely leaking and there are cracks on the fuel rail.

On 15 Nov 2003, my 1996 Chrysler Lhs, VIN 2c3hc56f7th189561, started smelling of gas while I was waiting at an intersection. After driving to a nearby lot, I determined that fuel was leaking on top of the engine, around the fuel injector rails. Didn't want to drive it, so I parked it and called my auto service for a tow to a las vegas precision tune autocare that I've used for vehicle maintenance. They confirmed the fuel rail assembly was leaking and needed replaced. Injector base gasket, injector o-rings, plum gasket and injector rail assembly was replace for $540. 72 equipment, $337. 12 labor, shop supplies $34. 55, and tax $43. 14 for a total of $955. 54. Upon filing my maintenance records I found an earlier daimler Chrysler safety recall to replace fuel rail o-rings and reinforce the fuel outlet rail, recall 790. I had a virginia chrylser dealer accomplish the recall corrections on 23 April 99. Called the 1-800-992-1997 Chrysler customer service number to determine their assistance in reimbursement for the obvious failed recall repairs. Was told by the representative that since I had not taken it to a Chrysler dealer there was nothing they could do. Two issues: 1. The recall repairs obviously did not correct the problem, how many other Lhs's could be vulnerable for an engine fire? for safety I hope someone researches this and ensures corrective measures are taken before someone gets hurt. 2. I've got the paperwork, is Chrysler still not liable for the repairs of their poorly engineered fuel system, enough so that it could cause an auto fire or worst? thanks for your time, rick miller.
