Honda And Acura Fuel Pump Failure

On 2021-03-31 10:02:36

A defect affecting vehicle safety has been found in certain 2018-2020 Acura and Honda vehicles. Honda will be contacting approximately 630,000 owners with instructions to return to their dealerships for repairs.

The low pressure fuel pump inside the fuel tank of these vehicles could fail. According to the defect report, the fuel pump module was manufactured with impellers that were exposed to solvent drying to longer periods of time. This affected the impeller density and made it more susceptible to swelling and cracking. If an impeller deforms to a point where it interferes with the fuel pump body, the fuel pump will become inoperative, the engine will stall and the malfunction indicator lamp in the instrument panel will illuminate.
