"The fuel system control modules may have a condition in which an adhesive separation of the room temperature vulcanizing seal between the seal and the housing may allow water to seep into the module," said NHTSA in its recall summary of the problem. "Water in the module could cause a short or open circuit, illumination of the service engine soon lamp, setting of diagnostic trouble codes or the engine may be hard to start, may not start or may stall, increasing the risk of a crash."
Starting on May 18, GM dealers will install a new fuel sensor control module gratis for any affected owners.If you have one of these vehicles, take it to your dealership or call one of the following numbers for more information.
