'98 Plymouth Voyager, Vehicle Fire

Q: I read an answer you gave a man about the smell of gas coming from his car, but couldn't find the problem. We had the same problem on our '98 Plymouth Voyager, but Friday night the engine caught on fire while I was driving it. The entire engine is burned up. We are waiting for the insurance company to call us, but I was wondering if there is some sort of recall on these vehicles?

- Kathy P.

A: Glad no one was hurt. There is a safety recall on your vehicle for gas leaks caused by failing o-rings that allow fuel to leak from the fuel rail crossover tube. The recall NHTSA Campaign ID #00V26800 potentially affects over 1 million Daimler/Chrysler vehicles that were manufactured from 02/1995 to 09/1999 with 3.3L and 3.8L engines. The recall, which was just released on 25th of January 2002, will be performed in phases due to the large number of vehicles affected. In your vehicle's case it's too late. If you need a copy of the safety recall you'll be able to obtain one from the dealer or go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's web site (www.nhtsa.dot.gov). For our readers, even though this safety recall is being performed in phases if you smell gas contact the dealer immediately for repair and do not operate the vehicle.
