Volkswagen has announced that it is recalling certain models of the 2009-2012 Jetta and Jetta Sportwagen vehicles, manufactured from May 2008 through September 2011, model year 2010 through 2012 Volkswagen Golf vehicles, manufactured from May 2009 through September 2011, and model year 2010 through 2012 Audi A3 vehicles manufactured from September 2009 through September 2011, that are equipped with a 2.0L TDI common rail diesel engine/clean diesel engine. They stated that the fuel injection pulses could coincide with the natural frequency of the injector line #2, if specific load and RPM conditions. This resonance creates additional stress in the fuel line.
Due to the resonance condition, injector line #2 could develop small cracks which could lead to fuel leakage. Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source could lead to a fire. Volkswagen will install an improved fuel injector line for the number 2 cylinder on certain vehicles and will install vibration dampers on all the injector lines. Volkswagen and Audi will notify owners and the service will be preformed free of charge. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
