While backing out of the garage, without warning the vehicle caught fire. The consumer extinguished the fire out and the vehicle was pushed back into the garage. The driver has contacted the dealer for inspection and a appointment. The recall was not for this vehicle. Please fill in additional information.

Chrysler concord recalled late 1998-car left at central and advised next morning car would not start. At the time car had about 35,000 miles. Dealer talked wife into 800 dollars worth of work on engine including injection cleaning---funny thats what it was in for on re-call so we now know 3 years later. Ca began leaking fuel July of 2001 and took car to pep boys to see what problem was. After replacing O rings still leaked, car returned to pep boys. They now had to replace injectors to see if that must be problem. Car still leaked.they called Chrysler and informed by Chrysler that the rails must of cracked again. But dealer not responsable because over 1 yr warrenty and 12000 miles, so I had to have pep boys order part S to do the repair. Since car was all apart at there store and cost to much to tow to a dealed. Foot /note I took sick and went to emgcy room for..as dr. Stated could of been from the fumes. Bad infection in throat put on pen vk. This was 1 day after problem total cost so far $1300 not including loss of work for week due to wellness. Robert F tierney.

Tsb # 790 was for the left fuel injection rail leaking (cracked). My right rail is leaking!!! I called Chrysler @ 1-800 992-1997 and tried to report this. They informed me that the recall in January, 1999 only affected the left fuel injection rail. I could have had a fire as the gasoline was leaking (in volume) on the top of my engine and running down the engine block onto the ground. I think Chrysler needs to be aware of this potential problem. I attempted to inform them of this today and I was told me to go to a dealer. I do my own car repair work and know a little about vehicles. I also know something about product safety as I am the product safety officer where I am employed. I have detailed digitial photos of the rail while it is leaking. They are good pictures. These pictures are worth more than 1000 words!!! if you want the pictures, please advise.
