Thank you for your advice. I found this recall and want to know if you think this could be a possibility Pontiac
Bonneville 1998, 1999, 2000
Engine, June 30, 2004
Original Recall from the NHTSA
Manufacturer's Report Date:
June 30, 2004
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number:
NHTSA Action Number:
Fuel system, gasoline: delivery
Potential Number of Units Affected:
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.
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. The recall will be conducted in phased mailings. Phase 1 began on June 30, 2004, and phase 2 began on September 30, 2004. Owners should contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668.7? Also, I would like to apologize for all the typos on my original post. I cant figure out how to edit to fix which I would have done before posting had that not been the fourth time due to interruptions that led to previously losing all the data that I typed. Lol. Anyway I greatly appreciate your time and your advice. Thank you.
