Fuel Line

I checked hoses and wire routing the other day and found a fuel line in a very tight spot that was rubbing against the engine. Caught it just in time, hate to think of what might of happened if it rubbed all the way through. I zipped tied it away from the engine for now. Thought people might want to look at theirs.

Great find, Ralph! Please consider reporting this to the NTHSA, they actually do keep a record of every incident like this and will issue a recall if there's a pattern. There may actually be a recall for this, I did not research that, but you can on their website by entering your VIN here.

Thanks for the link Stewart. There is no recall for this as far as I can find. I did report it.
