The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the possibly broken fuel pumps were “exposed to production solvent drying for longer periods of time” during manufacturing. This could cause surface cracking and excessive fuel absorption, potentially causing the impeller to deform and fail.
