Some of these engines may leak engine oil that could end up on the exhaust manifold during hard braking. If the manifold becomes hot enough, it could spark a small flame that could spread to the spark plug wire channel and lead to the risk of fire in the engine compartment.

Affected models include the 1997-2003 Buick Regal, 2000-03 Chevrolet Impala, 1998-99 Chevrolet Lumina, 1998-2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1998-99 Oldsmobile Intrigue and 1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Dealers will remove the spark plug wire retention channel from the front engine bay and install two spark plug wire retainers free of charge.

Owners can contact Chevy at 800-630-2438, Oldsmobile at 800-630-6537 and Pontiac at 800-620-7668. They can also visit or call the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
