Recall number 2!
Looks like 5 minutes work... I checked my fuel lines and they look fine to me.

My car was already in the shop for radar issues when this came out so they checked it before releasing the car. Must be a compression fitting because I was told if the connection was loose they have to order and replace the fuel line. If it was tight then it should not be a problem later on. Thank goodness it was tight cause they have already had my vehicle since I bought it.

Thanks, that's good information. I re-checked mine and they all seem solid.

Anyone have a pic of the area that needs inspection??
I was looking at the two fuel lines right beside the coolant reservoir (one has a rectangular thingy on it). There are quick connectors there by the firewall where those fuel lines attach to the vertical lines coming from under the car. My guess would be the one closest to the coolant reservoir which seems to be the supply to the fuel pump. It's not clear how the rubber fuel line is attached to the plastic connector, but I jiggled mine a bit and it seems firm. I checked the other line too, at both ends.

Thanks I'll give it a check, appreciate it!

I think it is all of them. They will check the line and if it's OK then no further work needed. Otherwise they will replace the fuel line.
From another thread, it is probably a good idea to call and check if they have the necessary tool yet, and also a replacement fuel line if necessary.
