The contact owns a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. While driving 2 mph, the accelerator pedal was depressed, but the vehicle failed to accelerate. The contact observed flames under the vehicle. The fire department extinguished the fire. The fire department stated that the fire occurred due to a fuel leak. Prior to the fire, there were no leaks present.

Went to start car one day. Turned key and heard loud pop. Rushed to lift good and top of motor on fire. Luckily had extinguisher right inside garage door and immediately extinguished. Plastic intake cover was blown apart in multiple pieces. After searching on the internet I found there have been many of this same incident, somewhere claiming that it comes from a faulty fuel shift of valve or something. If you notice with low miles, this car is barely driven and always babied.
