I drove without knowledge of problem. After a month of driving had a fire in engine. How did the lines hold up for so long. I had my Montana serviced for oil change and air filter. The place I took it to said they could not get air filter off. After getting vehicle back I could smell fuel off and on, did not return the vehicle because I trusted the shop and thought it was possible the mechanic had fuel or something on his clothes and got it in seat cover when moving the vehicle. After a month of driving with the unknown problem the vehicle finally caught fire. I have turned the incident into a claims department. Had vehicle evaluated and was told about the fuel lines being disrupted or cracked during the attempt to remove the air filter. Claims center wants to know how the lines crack and how it took so long to ignite. It has been my experience with these type of plastic lines that when disturbed or cracked they almost crackle? And in time with heat and pressure the cracks expand. Does this theory hold true? And if so how can I prove it to the claims center? Please help me as soon as possible!I am getting the run around and the burden of proof is all on me right now.
have the same problem?
