2017 Pacifica Fuel Rail Sensor replaced and now leaking fuel and will not start
My 2017 Chrysler Pacifica's (39k miles) check engine light turned on a week ago (Saturday) which pulled the OBDII code "P018C Fuel Pressure Sensor B Circuit Low." I was able to drive the vehicle with no issues and as I had a previous scheduled appointment with the dealer to address two open recalls, I waited until the following Friday to have the error code looked at.
On Friday morning, the recalls were addressed without issue (NHTSA Recall #18V-395 & 18V-332). The dealership told me that the error code was related to the fuel rail sensor and would need to be replaced. I agreed to the replacement and they proceeded with the repair. Once the vehicle was turned over to me, I noticed a strong fuel smell in the cabin which dissipated over the following day. The vehicle was driven around town running errands on Friday and Saturday.
Sunday morning, I filled the gas tank for the first time since the repair on Friday occurred and the tank had less than a 1/4 remaining during this time. The vehicle was than driven less than 10 miles and turned off while at home. Three hours later, the wife and kids turned on the ignition and the engine cranked but was not turning over. They then smelled a strong odor of gasoline and came back inside from the car. I went outside and saw a steady stream of gasoline on the driveway, directly under the engine bay. I also attempted to start the vehicle with no luck and the same symptoms. After a few minutes, the gasoline stopped dripping and the van is sitting idle in the driveway.
At this point, the vehicle is not drivable, and not safe as far as I'm concerned, as it will not start and I suppose I will need to tow it back to the dealership on Monday morning. The repair on Friday of the fuel rail sensor and not the car not started with leaking gasoline must be related, right? Is there any other issue that may have caused this or am I crazy to think this very well might be a labor issue that caused this issue. Any thoughts?
