Yellow Sac Spider Causes Problems For Mazda 6 – Cars Recalled

 – The yellow sac spider is causing problems for the 2009-2010 Mazda 6 automobiles.  These spiders have been found spinning webs in the evaporative canister vent line of the 4 cylinder cars.   This could cause the line to be blocked and cause vapors to build up in the canister.

The Mazda emission-control system will remove the vapors accumulated in the canister, but if the vent line is clogged by the yellow sac spider web, the process creates an excessive negative pressure in the fuel tank.  

The repeated exposure to negative pressures could cause the tank to fail, fuel to spill and create a fire hazard.

It is unknown how the spiders are getting into the vent line.

Mazda is recalling over 52,000 of its vehicles because of the spider threat. There have been 20 incidents of the yellow sac spider, but none have resulted in fires.

Notification of the recall will be sent out to owners in a few weeks.   The repair will consist of cleaning and replacing hoses and replace the fuel tank if it is compromised.
