General Motors has issued a recall for the Cadillac XT4 350D crossover in Europe due to an issue with the vehicle’s fuel pump module flange.
The problem: affected vehicles may have been fitted with a flange with an open recirculation port from the factory. A flange with an open recirculation port may allow fuel to leak out of the fuel tank during fill-up. Only Euro-spec Cadillac XT4 models with the turbocharged 2.0L LSQ four-cylinder diesel engine are involved in this recall campaign.
The hazards: if diesel fuel were to leak out from the vehicle during the refueling process, this could pose a hazardous materials situation with the potential for a fire to start.
The fix: Cadillac dealers will be instructed to inspect the fuel pump module in affected vehicles and, if necessary, the technician will replace the entire module. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
