Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ion yourself? What have you tried so far?

OK I don't have 5.5mm socket so I disconnected the power wires from the actuator. Will this cause a problem if I leave it unhooked and not replace the actuator
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
while fixing this car I found that there is a gas leak above the tank. I checked on some forums and it looks as if Gm has a recall on these and require changing out the fuel pump and gasket where it connects to the tank. I will need to get this taken care of with a dealership. do you think the GM dealership will cover this?

standby brother, let me look into it
