I have a 1997 Cadillac Seville sts and the fuel rail sprung a leak resulting in gas spread on the engine and fumes in the passenger compartment. This is extremely dangerous and had I not stopped quickly, a fire would have resulted. From my car repairman and looking on the web, this is not an isolated incident. Note complaint 10045758.

In reference to open investigation PE03050. I have Cadillac Seville, sts, 1997. Had exactly the same problem as described -- strong fuel smell in the car -- when checked by the dealership -- there was a pin hole in the fuel rail -- I have seen it myself and it was scary. Logged the complaint with Cadillac: 1-143771161 on 09/30/2003, but they were not willing to investigate any further at that time. Cadillac should recall all these vehichleas soon as possible because this is a significant fire hazard. Please feel free to contact me at (262) 860 6403 (work) if you have any questions. Regards, alex rivils.

Fuel rail leaked. Dealer stated rail was installed backwards. The fuel rail developed a leak in the heat shrink tubing which caused fumes to enter the cabin of the vehicle.
