Manufacturer : SPX FILTRAN
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 05E065000
Mfg's Report Date : OCT 04, 2005
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 42962
Summary: Certain SPX Filtran fuel filters with a 45-degree angle inlet tube, model 800f350-s1, sold as replacement filters for 1993-1997 ford probe, 1993-2001 Mazda 626 and mx-6, and 1983-1994 loyal, 3-door coupe, hatchback, sedan, wagon, brat, DL, GL, GL-10, RX, XT, and XT6 passenger vehicles with EFI or turbo engines. These filters are packaged as wix, Napa, and carquest brand fuel filters. Certain SPX Filtran fuel filters with a 90-degree angle inlet tube, model 800F300-S2, sold as replacement filters for 19983-1994 Subaru vehicles with EFI or turbo engines. These filters are packaged as wix, Napa, and carquest brand fuel filters. Fuel may leak from the filter due to non-conforming brazing welds where the inlet tube is connected to the filter can.

Consequence: In the presence of an ignition source, a vehicle fire can occur.

Remedy: SPX will notify its customers and provide a full refund. The recall began September 16, 2005. Owners should contact Mr. Doug Rees at 312-923-2837.





Anyone get a letter? Maybe only original owners will get them. Think I used a purolator for my last change. Check those filters if you smell gas or are getting bad gas mileage recently.:flamer:

Hmm... IIRC, the I4 fuel filter doesn't have a 45 degree inlet tube. Maybe this only applies to V6's?
