Damage from faulty vapor management valve?

Asked by Aug 03, 2015 at 02:12 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 2012 Ford Focus is getting serviced. We took it in to the dealer and they said the
vapor management valve caused the fuel tank and fuel pump to become damaged and
they say it will cost over $2000. Is it possible for a bad vapor management valve to warp
the gas tank and damage the fuel pump?

Sounds like an emissions system failure that should be covered under warranty. Even if you bought the car used, the warranty transfers to you. HTH. -Jim
