General Motors, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) instructions, is recalling over 38,000 of its SUVs and trucks due to a possible fuel leak within the engine compartment. Recalled vehicles include the 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche and 2004-2006 Avalanche 1500; 2006 Chevrolet Kodiak (pictured); 2004-2006 Chevrolet Silverado; 2004-2005 Chevrolet Suburban and 2006 Suburban 1500; 2004-2006 GMC Sierra; 2006 GMC Topkick 6500; and the 2004-2006 GMC Yukon XL.

According to the NHTSA, the 8.1 liter, V-8 engines found within these vehicles use a fuel rail pulse damper retainer clip. The clip may break in some of the trucks and SUVs, possibly causing flames to bellow from underneath the hood. Dealers have been instructed to replace the clip at no charge. Contact information can be found at the link.
