Great News!

Got my fuel tank replaced with no hassle and no cost to me. Works well so far. No more splash back.

SO after reading this thread, I believe this is exactly what is happening with my 2011 Nitro. If I cant get the dealership to replace the tank, what parts am I going to need to do it myself? I am more than capable of doing the job myself, I just dont want to have to pay for it, since it seems to be an ongoing issue with the Nitros.

Thanks
Andrew

Welcome Ratt

You would not want to pay for a expensive plastic new tank that includes the check valve built in and that is what it would take (at least in my case). There is a a simple test the Dealership can perform to justify replacing the tank under warranty. Have they performed that? If not demand that they do. Even if your tank would pass the test should be covered by warranty maybe.

$625.60

Sorry Ratt but after reading my post that "Life-Time" Warranty was only on 2007-2008 Nitro.

Thanks for the info. It's worth a shot trying. I read somewhere that some 2011s have had the same issue, and it sounds like the tanks in question were left overs from the 2007 run. I'm kind of curious what the cure date on my current tank is. It "should" be molded into the plastic somewhere.

I'm going to go hang out at the dealer where I bought my Nitro on Saturday and talk to the service people. See if I can work some magic
