Engine check light illuminated in the vehicle. Dealer diagnosed a ruptured fuel injection line. Fuel backed up to the computer module that could have caused a fire if ignited. The dealer stated the problem has never been seen to this degree. GM would not acknowledge this to be a dangerous problem and offered no assistance in making repaires.
