Recalls: 2011-2013 Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana CNG Fueling System

Faulty Solenoid, Vent Pipe Could Lead to Fire, Gas Leak In Cab

Edward A. SanchezJun 5, 2013
Impco Automotive, a supplier to General Motors for natural gas van conversions is recalling 2011-2013 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana models with compressed natural gas fuel systems. The companies found that some fuel shut-off solenoids manufactured by an outside supplier may be susceptible to corrosion, and could short circuit and potentially cause a fire. In addition to the solenoid, a separate recall has been issued for the vent pipe assembly as well.

The Problem: Solenoids on vans with a CNG conversion could corrode, and cause a short circuit that could lead to a fire. The pressure relief valve and vent pipe assembly on the CNG system may not vent correctly, venting natural gas into the passenger compartment.
The Fix: Impco, in conjunction with General Motors, will inspect and repair the vent pipe assembly and solenoid at no charge. Customers can contact the GM Fleet Action Center at 800-353-3867, or NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.

The pressure relief valve recall affects units built from November 23, 2010, through December 23, 2010.
