The Problem: A fuel pump connection on both sides of the fuel transfer pump may not be properly torqued and could result in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could lead to a fire.
The Fix: Chevy and GMC dealerships, at no charge, will tighten the fuel pump connection to the proper torque specifications to eliminate the potential problem.
What Owners Should Do: According to a GM spokesman, no fires, crashes or injuries have been reported and less than half of the affected vehicles have been bought by consumers. The recall will begin May 19, and owners will be contacted by Chevy and GMC representatives to make an appointment at the closest dealership. For more information, owners can call Chevy at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236; they can also visit www.safercar.gov.
