Chevy Cobalt Recall #07255 - Coolant Leak

#07255: Customer Satisfaction -- Coolant Leak - (Oct 4, 2007)

Subject:07255 -- Coolant Leak

Models: 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt
2008 Pontiac G5

THIS PROGRAM IS IN EFFECT UNTIL OCTOBER 31, 2008.
Condition

On certain 2008 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 vehicles, the hose connecting the surge tank to the thermostat cover may not seal sufficiently. This could result in a coolant leak at the thermostat cover. If enough coolant leaks out, the engine coolant temperature warning light will illuminate. If the vehicle is driven with the light illuminated, it could result in engine damage.
Correction

Dealers are to install an additional clamp to the hose at the thermostat cover.
Vehicles Involved

Involved are certain 2008 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 vehicles built within these VIN breakpoints:

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt 87100001--87125118
2008 Pontiac G5 87100006--87125081

Important: Dealers are to confirm vehicle eligibility prior to beginning repairs by using the GM Vehicle Inquiry System (GMVIS). Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.

For dealers with involved vehicles, a listing with involved vehicles containing the complete vehicle identification number, customer name, and address information has been prepared and will be provided through the applicable system listed below. Dealers will not have a report available if they have no involved vehicles currently assigned.

-- US dealers - GM DealerWorld Recall Information

-- Canadian dealers - GMinfoNet Recall Reports

The listing may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any purpose other than follow-up necessary to complete this program is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you are urged to limit the use of this report to the follow-up necessary to complete this program.
Parts Information

Parts required to complete this program are to be obtained from General Motors Service and Parts Operations (GMSPO). Please refer to your "involved vehicles listing" before ordering parts. Normal orders should be placed on a DRO = Daily Replenishment Order. In an emergency situation, parts should be ordered on a CSO = Customer Special Order.

Part Number
