: the contact stated the vehicle would leak intermittently while parked or driving various speeds. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who replaced the fuel rail of the gas tank as a recall but the part was defective and did not correct the problem. The consumer's vehicle developed another leak, however the dealer stated the recall problem and the secons problem were not related. Updated 12/01/06.
