With the black bumper, guess it's either an 01 or 02. Looks like the back was full of grocery bags.

Here's the news story.....

They did have a recall in 2002 with the fuel line rubbing against the A/C line and catching fire. Chrysler's answer was to use a Zip Tie to pull the fuel line away from rubbing. I kid you not. I still have the original Zip Tie from taking it in for the recall. Hard to see in any of my engine pics because I covered all the lines with with chrome wire looms.

You can see the Zip Tie in this old picture of mine. It's around the fuel line and goes over to the Power Steering fluid holder.

The way they route that plastic fuel line is downright scary.
Once upon a time, fuel lines were low pressure and made of steel with metal flare fittings. Nowadays, fuel lines are high pressure and made of plastic with plastic fittings...go figure.

btw...CREWZIN...that detail on the ribs on the intake manifold looks really cool.

That's done with an enamel paint pen. Comes in different colors and available at Walmart or on-line for an even better choice of colors.
