Honda & Acura Fuel Pump Failure

On 2020-06-09 10:21:44

Honda will be asking the owners of certain 2018-2020 Honda and Acura vehicles to return to their dealerships to correct a problem affecting the fuel system. The vehicles affected was determined by manufacturing and supplier records to include any vehicles that could potentially experience the problem.


According to the defect report, the fuel pump module may have been manufactured with low density impellers that are prone to cracking if exposed to production solvent drying for longer periods of time. These cracks could lead to excessive fuel absorption which could deform the impeller, causing the fuel pump to become inoperative. If this happens, the vehicle will stall and the “Engine Malfunction” indicator lamp will illuminate in the instrument panel.


The Vehicles Affected Include
2018-2019 Honda Accord
2018-2019 Honda Civic
2019 Honda Fit
2018-2019 Honda HR-V
2019-2020 Honda Insight
2018-2019 Acura NSX
2019 Acura RDX
2019 Acura RLX
2019 Acura RLX Hybrid


Dealerships will correct the problem by replacing the fuel pump assembly.  The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
