On certain sport utility vehicles, a weld between the fuel tank inlet check valve and the fuel tank can fail. If these parts separate, the driver may notice an odor of fuel, the Service Engine Soon or Check Engine light may illuminate, and/or fuel may leak onto the ground. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
