..ehhh..mine just started leaking again. I did a repair last summer as here in Canada they say the recall is just about a nylon pipe they change on the pump module...but someone from Ste-Catherines Ontario got his changed for free last year. ...will try the "squeeky wheel" way again....

is it leaking at the tank or at the pump.
i had my pump fitting start leaking last year, and had fixed it. just last week i had my tank replaced under the american recall, i think it helped my situation that my truck originally came from down east were they use the salt. it was leaking at the tank seam, and as well at the fuel pump nylon fitting again!.

Had the dealer here in Calgary run my VIN & since my Sporty was originally sold here it does'nt fall under the recall. Only recall that shows up for mine has something to do with the heater control. Also emailed Kia Canada asking about recalls & they said the same thing <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />.

Guess on the upside...if it aint broke don't fix it <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />.

if you replace the tank yourself, make sure you have the correct one. i had to replace the tank on my old sportage and was sold the wrong one. all the tanks are built the same on the first gen. but the internal baffles are different after 97, i ended up cutting the back half of the baffle. the baffle and the fuel pumps were changed after 97.
