2004 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 012006

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,589 miles


The weld between the fuel tank inlet check valve and the fuel tank has failed causing a gas leak. There was an earlier recall issued (NHTSA recall no. 03V454/GM recall no. 03055) that was limited to 79 vehicles. I own a 2004 model that is not one of the 79 vehicles and I am encountering the exact same problem as what is outlined in the recall. I believe more vehicles are affected that what is noted by GM.

problem #1

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Gas leaking from the area near the fuel tank was noticed when the car was parked in a garage. Previous to that the car was parked in a apartment parking lot, so the gas leak may have exisited days earlier. Luckily there were no injuries or fires because of this before it was detected. The car was towed to the dealership and they replaced the whole fuel tank and seal. Gas was apparently leaking from a seam in the fuel tank. Though some 2004 Azteks were recalled for this problem, mine was apparently not on the recall list.
