Almost half a million Hondas and Acuras recalled for Fuel Pumps

Honda recalling more than 437,000 model year 2016-2018 Acura MDX, 2015-2019 Acura TLX and 2015-2017 Honda Accord vehicles equipped with 3.5-liter V6 engines.
Honda says sodium particulates that can be found in gasoline can stick to internal components in the fuel pumps, increasing resistance in the pumps and causing reduced performance. The pumps can be affected to the point the engines stall without warning while driving in areas of high ambient temperatures.
The automaker plans to fix the problem by updating the software for the fuel injection engine control unit. Some dealership may even replace the fuel pumps.
If you own a 2016-2018 Acura MDX, 2015-2019 Acura TLX or 2015-2017 Honda Accord, you may call 888-234-2138. Acura's number for this recall is P3W and Honda's recall number is N3X.
