BMW recalls 5 Series, 6 Series, X5, and X6 models for fuel leaks?
BMW is recalling 136,188 vehicles in the United States and another 18,284 in Canada due to improperly crimped wiring for the fuel pump in the gas tank. The affected models are:
2010-2011 5-Series Gran Turismo
2010-2011 X6 ACTIVEHYBRID
The in-tank fuel pumps on these vehicles have insufficiently crimped wire contacts. This causes an increase in contact resistance and extra heat. Over time, the plastic around the contact pins can melt, and this can allow fuel to leak. If the pump isn’t working, then the engine could stall. If this problem occurs, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp should illuminate, and some customers report smelling gasoline in the cabin.
