Mitsubishi Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Mitsubishi is recalling model year 2008-2009 Lancer evolution, ralliart, and sportback ralliart vehicles equipped with turbocharged engines. The manner in which the fuel return pipe is attached to the engine, in combination with frequent vehicle operation at certain engine revolutions, may result in a resonance that, if continued over time, may cause a stress crack to develop at the fixed portion of the fuel pipe.
The fuel return pipe will be replaced with a new part and two additional attachment brackets will be installed to better control fuel pipe vibration. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall began on September 29, 2009. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820.
