Make(s):
BUICK, CHEVROLET, OLDSMOBILE, PONTIAC
Model(s):
88, BONNEVILLE, IMPALA, LESABRE, MONTE CARLO, PARK AVENUE
Year(s):
1998, 1999, 2000
Manufacturer:
GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
NHTSA ID:
04V090000
Recall Date:
February 24th, 2004
Units Affected:
910,873

Affected Component: Fuel system, gasoline:delivery.

Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 3800 v6 (l36) engines and certain delphi fuel pressure regulators, the regulators have a much higher than usual rate of fuel leaks. A leak can allow fuel to enter the intake manifold through a vacuum line. If the engine does not start when cranked, the fuel from the leaking regulator and a mistimed spark can cause a backfire. .

Conequence: The backfire can rupture the intake manifold. The rupture of the intake manifold can displace a fuel line, pulling an injector out of place, and causing a fuel leak and possible fire. .

Remedy: Dealers will install new fuel pressure regulators with improved diaphragms. The recall will be conducted in phased mailings. Phase 1 began on june 30, 2004, and phase 2 began on september 30, 2004. Owners should contact buick at 1-866-608-8080, oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537, or pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. .

Notes: Gm recall no. 03054b. See campaign 03v-473 for additional units. Customers can also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236). .

NHTSA ID:
99V089000
Recall Date:
n/a
Units Affected:
99,333

Affected Component: Power train:automatic transmission.

Summary: Vehicle description: passenger vehicles equipped with 4t65e automatic transmissions. These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of fmvss no. 102, "transmission shift lever sequence. " a retaining clip, which secures the manual valve to the linkage of the transmission detent lever, can become loose under a combination of possible driver shifting maneuvers and allow the link to become disconnected from the manual valve. .

Conequence: If the link disconnects, the driver's indicated prndl state may differ from the hydraulic state of the transmission. If the driver selects 'drive' and the transmission is actually in 'reverse', a vehicle crash could occur. .

Remedy: Dealers will replace the manual valve/link assembly with a replacement manual valve/link kit, featuring a spring-type fastener. .

Notes: Owner notification began may 25, 1999. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact buick at 1-800-521-7300, pontiac at 1-800-762-2737, or oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537. Also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236). .
