Chrysler Corporation

Models:

Chrysler Concorde Years: 1993
Dodge Intrepid Years: 1993
Eagle Vision Years: 1993


Number Involved: 84,600
Dates of Manufacture: June 1992 - May 1993
NHTSA Recall No.: 98V130
Vehicle Description:
Description of Defect: On these passenger vehicles built with 3.3-liter engines, the O-rings used to seal the interface of the fuel injector rail supply, return, and cross-over tubes are not as durable as those used in later model years. Deterioration of the O-rings can cause fuel leakage, and in the presence of an ignition source, could result in an engine compartment fire.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the engine fuel rail.
Owner Notification: Chrysler has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this recall.

NHTSA said manufacturers are required to mail a recall notice to all purchasers, owners and dealers when a safety defect or noncompliance with Federal safety standards is found. The agency urges owners to wait until they receive notification from the manufacturer before contacting their dealers to schedule the repair work. Not all vehicles of a particular make and model may be subject to the recall.
