GTO 8-cyl

While doing a springtime check of my GTO, noticed coil cover rubbing on fuel rail feed line. Abrasion was almost all the way through the line. Had to replace with steel braided line from russels. Could have caused fire in the engine bay.

Based on a tip from the ls1gto.com message board, I checked my recently purchased 'certified" 2004 Pontiac GTO for a fuel line rubbing the fuel rail plastic cover - and eventually wearing through the fuel line, and causing a fire in the engine compartment. My vehicle does indeed exhibit the symptom - and it was just checked and "certified" at the dealer when I purchased it 45 days ago. I have removed the fuel rail covers permanently and will have to purchase a new fuel line myself as it seems GM or the NHTSA are unwilling to admit and fix the problem. A number of fires have already been reported by others.....

I own a 2004 Pontiac GTO. Removal of the fuel rail covers indicates that the fuel line was impinged upon by the fuel rail cover on the drivers side. Recently there have been a couple of GTO's on the website that have caught fire and many owners including myself that checked and noticed the problem. GM needs to fix this problem. I learned of this from www.ls1gto.com here a couple of links regarding the problem: www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php"T=76496 www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?T=76173 www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php"T=278541.
