problem #1

Nov 012006

Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles
The contact owns a 1996 Dodge Intrepid. In December of 2006, the contact took his vehicle to the dealer for a recall repair. He informed the mechanic that he often smelled gas fumes in the passenger compartment. The contact was informed that the O-ring in the injectors were the source of the fumes and they were replaced. In the process of changing the O-ring, the mechanic noticed a crack in the fuel injection rail. The contact was then informed of a recall that described the same failure he was experiencing. He was notified that the previous owner of the vehicle already had the recall repaired, therefore the failure could no longer be repaired under recall. The contact stated that the tires should be functioning properly since they were replaced. The recall number was unknown. The failure mileage was 160,000 and current mileage was 174,000.
