This is for the gtp supercharged model. Replaced the fuel pump and now all of a sudden leaking out of shrader valve above the injectors which is was not doing before. Online says there was a delphi fuel pressure regulator recall but after entering my VIN says no recalls. Although I also took it in last year due to the recall concerning oil dripping on the manifold and causing possible fire so unsure why it said no recalls.. I will attach photo of website claims. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
