Frequently Asked Questions

What is the issue tied to this recall?

Certain vehicles may have an oil drive belt tensioner arm that may fracture or separate. In some vehicles, the oil pump drive belt material can degrade and lose teeth. If these failures occur, the vehicle will experience low oil pressure. This could cause a loss of vehicle power and a loss of the mechanical vacuum pump required to provide power braking assist, increasing the risk of a crash.

What is the cause of the issue?

It may be possible for the engine oil-pump drive belt tensioner arm to fracture, separate from the tensioner backing plate, and/or the oil-pump drive belt material may degrade and lose teeth, resulting in a loss of engine oil pressure.
