General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Chevrolet Express vehicles converted by Impco Automotive to run compressed natural gas (CNG), manufactured between November 23, 2010, and December 23, 2010, and equipped with a four tank configuration using a pressure relief device (PRD) and pressure relief vent pipe assembly.
Problem: In the affected vehicles, the pressure relief vent pipe assembly may have been built incorrectly. If a pressure relief device activates with an improperly assembled vent pipe, compressed natural gas may be vented into the passenger compartment. If an ignition source is present, an explosion or fire may result.
Solution: Impco Automotive, in cooperation with General Motors will inspect and make any necessary repairs on the pressure relief device and vent pipe assembly. The safety recall began on March 28, 2013. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300. This is General Motors campaign number 13065.
