Mazda Recall 6211B: Fuel Tank Pressure

2009 Mazda MAZDA6 Seal Of Pretty Good

As the canister is purged repeatedly during normal operation, the stress on the fuel tank may eventually result in a crack, potentially leading to fuel leakage ad an increased risk of fire.

Fuel System, Gasoline — Storage — Tank Assembly

Mazda is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured from April 8, 2008, through February 8, 2010. A certain type of spider may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line and this may cause a restriction in the line. If this occurs, the fuel tank pressure may become excessively negative when the emission control system works to purge the vapors from the canister.
Dealers will inspect and clean up the canister vent line, and install a spring to prevent this type of spider from entering the vent line. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 25, 2011. Owners may contact Mazda customer assistance center at 1-800-222-5500.
