90 Oldsmobile Calais, Engine Fire Recalls
Q:
Do you have any information about the '90 Oldsmobile Calais as to engine fires? I've see information on '89's with engine fire problems. Were there any recalls for the '90's?.......Beth

A: Yes, there is a vehicle safety recall on some '90 Oldsmobile Calais. The ALLDATA Information Systems shows bulletin No. 90-C-02 addressing this vehicle safety concern. The safety recall was issued because the fuel lines for the fuel injection system, under the hood of the vehicle, had not been properly tightened. The connections may loosen and cause fuel to leak into the underhood area, which could result in a fire. The fix, which takes very little time, requires proper torquing (tightening) of the fittings for the fuel lines. Be sure to stop by your nearest Oldsmobile Dealer to verify whether or not this safety recall applies to your vehicle. As with all safety related recalls the Dealer is to perform the necessary repairs on all involved vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of mileage, age of vehicle, or ownership.
