Toyota recently updated a worldwide recall of vehicles that may have fuel pump problems.

A total of 5.84 million vehicles worldwide are being recalled because the fuel pump could stop working, causing the vehicle to stall and possibly not restarting. This problem also increases the risk of an accident while driving at higher speeds.

Of the 5.84 million recalled vehicles, approximately 3.34 million are in the United States. On January 13, 2020, Toyota initially announced a recall of 695,541 Toyota and Lexus models due to a faulty fuel pump, added 1.1 million more vehicles to this recall in March, and later added 1.52 million vehicles to the recall in the United States. …

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that potentially malfunctioning fuel pumps “were dried with manufacturing solvent for longer periods of time” during production. This can cause surface cracking and excessive absorption of fuel, which can lead to deformation and failure of the working mechanism.
