The high-pressure fuel rail may not have been produced by the supplier according to specifications. BMW has noted that the wall of the rail thickness and it may be smaller than required in certain locations. This could cause cracks to occur and may lead to a fuel leak within the engine compartment. A fuel leak within the engine compartment in the presence of an ignition source could trigger a fire, which could be fatal, claims the automaker in a statement.

The German automaker commenced an engineering analysis of the issue after receiving a report of a high-pressure fuel rail problem on June 16, 2022, from an engine production plant.

However, BMW has also said that the car manufacturer has not received any reports nor is it aware of any accidents or injuries that may have been caused by the fuel rail issue. It is not sure if any other BMW X3 has been impacted by the defect anywhere in the world.
