Dodge Recall 895: Daimlerchrysler/Fuel Leakage

2000 Dodge Caravan

Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire.

Fuel System, Gasoline — Fuel Injection System

Vehicle description: Mini vans built with 3.3L and 3.8L engines have fuel rails with nitrole rubber O-ring seals that can degrade over time. Fuel leakage from the underhood fuel injection fuel rail could result, increasing the likelihood of a vehicle fire.
Dealers will install a seal on the vehicle fuel rails to prevent external leakage of fuel from the fuel rail crossover tube, should the existing O-rings continue to degrade. Owner notification began on January 25, 2002. Due to the large quantity of vehicles involved in this campaign, the owner notification will be phased over the next several months. However, if a vehicle is leaking fuel from the O-rings, the vehicle should be taken into a dealer to have this repaired as soon as possible. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
