General Motors has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about an upcoming safety recall that involves certain 1997-2004 model year (MY) Buick Regal, 2000-2004 MY Chevrolet Impala, 1998-1999 MY Chevrolet Lumina, 1998-2004 MY Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1998-1999 MY Oldsmobile Intrigue, and 1997-2004 MY Pontiac Grand Prix vehicles equipped with a 3.8L V6 engine (RPO L26, L32, L36 or L67). The GM recall number is 15757.
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain of the following vehicles equipped with a 3.8L V6 engine (RPO L26, L32, L36 or L67): 1997-2004 model year (MY) Buick Regal, 2000-2004 MY Chevrolet Impala, 1998-1999 MY Chevrolet Lumina, 1998-2004 MY Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1998-1999 MY Oldsmobile Intrigue, and 1997-2004 MY Pontiac Grand Prix. Certain of these vehicles have a condition in which drops of engine oil may be deposited on the exhaust manifold through hard braking. This condition could cause an engine compartment fire.
Certain of these vehicles produced before June 26, 2003 were subject to General Motors' prior safety recalls 07035, 09047 and 14574. In some cases, the repair procedure performed on these vehicles pursuant to the prior recalls may not be sufficient to prevent subsequent engine compartment fires relating to this condition in the affected vehicles. Vehicles previously repaired under the referenced recalls will receive further repairs as part of this recall.
The repair procedure for this recall is currently being validated. GM will provide this information as soon as it is available.
This is a courtesy notification to dealers. Dealers will be advised when the recall bulletin is scheduled for release.
The Investigate Vehicle History screen in the Global Warranty Management system will be updated in the near future for this upcoming safety recall. This action is being taken to assist dealers with determining which vehicles are involved so they can properly respond to customer inquiries. Please note the "N/A" under Release Date and the "Incomplete – Remedy Not Yet Available" message under Status. This means release of the recall bulletin is still pending and dealers should not attempt to perform any repairs at this time.
