Consumers are warned of crash risk if fuel pumps fail and cause engines to stall.
Denso International America Inc. (Denso) is recalling about 2,020,000 fuel pumps because an impeller within the low-pressure fuel pump may crack and deform, potentially causing the fuel pump to fail. If the fuel pump fails, the engine can stall while an operator is driving, increasing the risk of a crash (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 20E026, Report receipt date: April 24, 2020).
Remedy. Denso has notified the affected vehicle and aftermarket equipment manufacturers who will conduct recalls as necessary to replace the fuel pumps. The recall schedule will be decided by vehicle manufacturers.

Owners also may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
