Honda, Acura Fuel Pump Recall Impacts 2.6 Million Vehicles With Engine Stall Risk

Owners of recalled Honda and Acura vehicles will receive notification in February, indicating that a defective fuel pump needs to be replaced to reduce the risk of engine stalls and accidents

Honda is recalling 2.6 million vehicles due to defectively manufactured fuel pumps, which could cause the engine to stall suddenly, creating a serious auto accident risk on U.S. roadways.

The Honda fuel pump recall was announced in a press release by the automaker on Thursday, impacting various Honda and Acura vehicles from model years 2017 through 2020. However, no incidents or accidents have been reported as a result of the engine stall risk, according to the manufacturer.

“The fuel pump impeller was improperly molded, resulting in low density impellers. Over time, the low-density impeller can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body, rendering the fuel pump inoperative,” the recall states. “If the fuel pump module is inoperative, the engine may not start or can stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.”
