This is a good question. I was told that it takes 3-4 hours to do this repair. I dropped my van off at about 1pm and it wasn't ready until the next day. Given this much work, I suspect that wherever this issue is happening is not easily accessible. Robb would be the one who would know for sure.Are the fuel hoses easy enough to look at to see if there is any obvious weeping?
In my case, it's more like vapors. i have 42,000 miles on it and it happens about once a month since new. I received my notice and the dealer has ordered replacement parts. I told them I want to talk with the tech or SA to give them all the details i have on the symptoms. I've never smelled it with the engine running, it's always static, and normally around opening the door, which causes the fuel pump to pulse which is normal, but should not leak.I got my notice. I know this is a safety recall but just wondering how urgent it is. I only have about 5000 miles on my van and have not noticed any gasoline smell.
Are the fuel hoses easy enough to look at to see if there is any obvious weeping? If there are no symptoms, can I put off the recall work for a while, maybe even wait until I am in for a regular service?
Has anyone had their fuel lines checked but not replaced because they were not leaking?
That seems to be what the Recall Notice is saying they will do: “check the two possibly affected connections of the fuel line on all potentially affected vehicles and replace them, if necessary.”
If they found no leak, would the Recall be marked as Complete? If marked Complete, would a leak that developed later still be covered by the Recall or not since it was already marked as Complete even if no parts were changed?
