Kia to Replace ORVR Valve
13 November 2000Kia to Replace ORVR Valve
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 10 Kia today announced a voluntary recall of 1998 and 1999 Sephia compact sedans to replace the on-board refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) valve. A total of 100,137 Sephias will be recalled due to a miscalibrated ORVR valve that could make it difficult to completely fill the fuel tank. It could also result in fuel coming back out during refueling, which could be a safety hazard. Sephia owners are being asked by mail to bring their vehicle to a Kia dealership so the ORVR valve can be replaced. The procedure will take about two hours and will be done at no charge.
