What are the defects?

Due to insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor connected to the engine fuel delivery pipe with Nickel Phosphorus plating, there is a possibility that, over time, the pressure sensor could loosen.

What are the hazards?

Fuel could leak past a gasket used in the connection between the sensor and pipe and through the threaded portion of the sensor.

What should consumers do?

All owners of affected vehicles will receive a Recall Notification Letter.

Owners are advised to contact their authorised Toyota Dealership for inspection and retightening of the fuel pressure sensor, and if the fuel is leaking, replacement of the fuel pressure sensor gasket with a new one.

This will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owners.
