Jul. 22, 1988
DETROIT (AP) _ American Honda Motor Co. announced today it is recalling about 280,000 1984 and 1985 Civics to correct a fuel pump that could leak and catch fire.
High under-hood temperatures and internal pressure could cause fuel to leak between the two pump halves, the automaker said in a statement from its Gardena, Calif., headquarters.
No injuries stemming from the defect have been reported, Honda said.
The automaker said it will notify owners that Honda dealers will replace the pump for free.
