Recalls for 2018 Lexus LC LC 500 RWD
2018 LEXUS LC500
NHTSA Campaign ID: 18V107000
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:FUEL PUMP
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Manufacture Dates: 10/11/2016 - 12/05/2017
Potential Units Affected: 9905
Defect Description:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2016-2018 Lexus GS F, 2018 LC500, and 2015-2018 Lexus RC F vehicles, equipped with 5.0L V8 2UR-GSE engines with two high pressure fuel pumps. Specific operating conditions may result in damage to the pulsation damper in one of the high pressure fuel pumps, possibly causing a fatigue crack in the fuel pump cover.
Consequence:
A cracked cover may leak fuel, which, in the presence of an ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire.
Action to take:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the high pressure fuel pumps, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 2, 2018. Owners may contact Lexus customer service 1-800-255-3987. Toyota's numbers for this recall are J2B and JLB.
