Default 1998 Bonneville (L36) Engine- RECALL INFO!!!

NHTSA Campaign # 04V090000- Dated Feb 16, 2004

Component: Fuel system, Gasoline Delivery
On certain passenger vehicles equipped with the 3800 V6 (L36) engines and certain delphi fuel pressure regulators, the regulators have a much higher than usual rate of fuel leaks A leak can allow fuel to enter the intake manifold through a vacuum line.If the engine does not start when cranked, the fuel from the leaking regulator and a mistimed spark can cause a backfire.

The backfire can rupture the intake manifold. The rupture of the intake manifold can displace a fuel line, pulling an injector out of place, and causing a fuel leak and possible fire.

Dealers will install new fuel pressure regulators with improved diaphragms. Owner notification is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2004. Owners should contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668.


See the NHTSA.dot.gov site for verification of the above info!
GM Recall # 03054B. Customers can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236)

I can think of a couple people that recently paid to have that repaired. Can they get a refund?

I really don't know- I know the recall is for cars built from March 1st 1997 to Aug 31, 1998- for Pontiac Bonneville'*. I would check with Pontiac Cust Service to see if you are entitled to any refund or not. The same recall was made around the first of the year for Buick Park Ave owners- 1998,1999- i'm thinking maybe this is a problem with the DELPHI Fuel Pressure Regulators on all of their N/A L-36 Engines?
Since I have a 98 SSE with this recall- i'll be calling Pontiac first thing this Monday morning!
