My daughter returned home after a five minute drive and parked our 2001 Grand Prix GT in our driveway. 15 minutes later the vehicle had smoke coming out from under the hood. I tried to open the hood but the latch must have melted. By the time the fire dept came out and pried open the hood the whole engine compartment was engulfed in flames. They put the fire out but it was to late, the car was subsequently totaled by our insurance company. I had a GM investigator come out to see the car and he took many photos. I kept this car in immaculate condition. Always hand washed and waxed it. All repairs done at the dealer. At 97,000 miles the car looked and ran like new. After talking to others and doing some research it appears this fire may be due to a fuel leak involving the fuel rail. The last repair at the dealer involved replacement of intake manifold gaskets in may of 2007, which are located around the fuel rail. GM has not gotten back to me regarding this investigation. This car had the GM 3800 series II V6 engine on the ODI investigation EA07-008. Something should be done soon before some one loses their life, home, etc.
