Fuel Pump Leaks Fuel Creating Fire Hazard

Recall Details

The fuel pump feed port may crack due to exposures to acids such as car wash soap. This would create a leak of pressurized fuel causing a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the fuel pump as needed and install a fuel pump cover free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

Exposure to acids from outside influence, including those found in car watch soaps for example, can cause the feed port of the fuel pump to crack. This would allow pressurized fuel to leak out, creating a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Honda must be performed by a Honda dealership. Honda will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Honda dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Honda recall number is Q3V.
