My engine light came on again this past March and when I took it in for an oil change, I had them check it. Charged me $100.00 diagnostic. Told me they think I just had debris in my fuel filler neck and they had reset the code. They told me that if it came on again, I would need to replace the fuel filler neck.
Of course, the light comes on within a day. I call back and they order the part. I pay $200.00 for the part and installation. I pick it up on Wednesday and the engine light is back on by Friday.
I call again and they tell me to have it scanned at AutoZone to see if it's the same code. It was. P0455. I bring it back in today and they tell me the fuel vapor canister has fuel in it and is bad. They want $450.00 for the part and another $100.00 to install. I said no way. I can find the part cheaper and I have a mechanic who can do the install. But, they want to charge me another $100.00 diagnostic fee for looking at it again today. I think that is absurd.
My question, is it possible that they not reconnecting a hose on the original recall caused the fuel to get into the canister? I never had any issues with my fuel tank until they did the recall work.
have the same problem?
