Over 708,000 Honda and Acura vehicles are being recalled to replace their DENSO fuel pumps. The pumps have a defect that'll cause them to stop pumping fuel to the engine. You don't need to be a mechanic to see why that's a problem.

About the Recall

  • The pump's impellers are shipping with tiny cracks that absorb fuel over time. This expands and deforms the impeller until it just stops working.
  • This is a big expansion for North American customers. Honda recalled 1.4 million vehicles for this issue last June, but only 146,000 of those were in the USA or Canada.
  • This latest recall is expected to begin in late May 2021 and covers over 628,000 vehicles in the USA and 80,000 in Canada.
