15575 - under hood fire

Curious as to what exactly they do for this recall. Searched the forum and didn't find a definitive answer.

Getting tired of the nag notices in the mail, and it might be an out for insurance companies if I don't get it done.

For what its worth, my '02 had leaky valve cover seals when I got it, I had them changed when getting some other work done a couple years ago.

Why don't you call the service department of your local dealer and ask what exactly is done?

I am assuming your impala has the 3.8l engine. In the under hood fire recall the left side (radiator side) valve cover is replaced with a redesigned one, and the spark plug wire channel is removed and spark plug wire clips are installed if the previouse recall wasn't done.
