The fuel injection wiring harness length is apparently too long and it can drop down near the exhaust manifold where the heat will melt the insulation on the wires causing them to short together causing severe misfire and possible damage to the catalytic converter. The vehicle had run fine a couple of days previously and on starting the vehicle it seemed to idle a little rough. Driving on the road it ran very rough and was randomly misfiring on multiple cylinders. The mil light began to flash on and off on acceleration. On investigation the wires in the fuel injection wiring harness were found to be melted and shorting together. I suspect in the ensuing two days that the temperature changes exacerbated the problem and temperature change induced movement caused the wires to short together. From researching this problem it affects many vehicles. I'm surprised that a recall has not yet been issued for it.

Severe gasoline odor from under the whole car. Noticed the gasoline leak from the side of the gasoline tank where the white plastic connector was welded to a black plastic gas tank.. we noticed the gasoline odor while we are in a house. Gasoline was leaking from the gasket between the gas tank and white plastic attachment assembly.

Rear fuel tank retention strap broke and noticed front strap has imminent failure due to rusting. If the front strap broke the plastic tank would drag on the ground causing a hole in the fuel tank and ignition of fuel tank and vehicle and loss of life. All vehicles like this need inspection and repair as soon as possible.
