General Motors is planning to recall 1.4 million previously-recalled vehicles due to an issue that could lead to a fire.

This recall will be the third to fix the issue on the same vehicles since 2007. The previous recalls took place in 2007 and 2009 and included 1.1 million of the cars included in this latest recall. Affected vehicles are over 10 years old.

The defect: oil leaks onto a hot engine manifold, which typically happens after “hard braking”, according to GM.

The hazards: if the engine leaks onto a hot manifold, a fire could begin.

According to GM, 1,345 cars caught fire after they were previously fixed by dealers, meaning that even car owners who had their vehicles repaired will need to bring them back for another fix.

About 85 percent of the fires took place when the car was shut off and there was no one around the car, said GM spokesman Alan Adler.

GM is aware of 19 reported minor injuries over the last six years tied to the problem but no crashes or deaths.

Affected vehicles:

    1997-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
    2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala
    1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina
    1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
    1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
    1997-2004 Buick Regal

Number of vehicles affected: 1.4 million.

The fix: GM has not yet announced a repair that will solve the problem. Whatever it will be, there will be no charge to owners for the repairs.

Owners should: GM’s 2009 recall letter strongly recommended that owners of affected vehicles do not park their vehicle “in a garage, car port or other structure.”

Customers looking to find out if their vehicle is included in this GM recall should visit recalls.gm.com. There, owners will be able to enter their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see any open recalls as well as customer satisfaction programs. If the vehicle is part of the recall, customers should take it to a General Motors dealer.

Since the Pontiac and Oldsmobile brands have been discontinued by GM, owners of these vehicles can go to any Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac dealership for the repair.

Owners can also contact Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, or Oldsmobile customer service with questions by using the following information.
