Default Recall notice #3054

Got a postcard today for a recall on my 99 bonnie for a intake fire. What is this all about and what do they do to correct this?

Isn't that the one where the FPR drools in the intake and can detonate after about 15 minutes delay on the next restart? Or am I getting this all mixed up?

Yup... from nhtsa.dot.gov:

---------------------
Make: PONTIAC
Model: BONNEVILLE
Year: 1999
Recall Number: 04V090000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 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.
Consequence:
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.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL NEW FUEL PRESSURE REGULATORS WITH IMPROVED DIAPHRAGMS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JUNE 2004, FOR THE 1998-1999 VEHICLES AND IN SEPTEMBER 2004 FOR THE 2000 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, OR PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668.
Notes:
GM RECALL NO. 03054B. CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION’* AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

Sorry willren, but 37 does not entitle you to "old fart" status, I'd like to think that doesn't start till 60.

Back to the matter at hand, how many stories like Scott'* have you heard of?

Wasn't there a picture of a Regal'* 3800 where the upper intake had completely blown apart? That might have been caused by the same problem.

Just a tad concerned, I never "pushed" my other Bonnies as hard as i've spurred the Silver Horse, peace of mind means more at this sweetheart'* top end.
