Problem Summary: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Lexus LS vehicles manufactured May 9, 2006, to July 20, 2010, 2006-2011 Lexus GS vehicles manufactured January 6, 2005, to September 10, 2010, and 2006-2011 Lexus IS vehicles manufactured August 30, 2005, to September 10, 2010. Due to anti-corrosion plating remnants, fuel may leak from where the fuel pressure sensor is attached to the fuel delivery pipe.
Consequence: A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will clean and reseal the fuel pressure sensor mounting area, free of charge. The recall began March 3, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
Problem Summary: TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2011 LEXUS GS350 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED JUNE 19, 2006, THROUGH JULY 12, 2011; AND MODEL YEAR 2006-2011 LEXUS IS350 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED MAY 27, 2005, THROUGH JULY 13, 2011; AND MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 LEXUS IS350C VEHICLES MANUFACTURED NOVEMBER 25, 2009, THROUGH JULY 19, 2011. THESE VEHICLES, EQUIPPED WITH THE 2GR-FSE ENGINE, USE BOLTS TO SECURE THE HOUSING AND SPROCKET OF THE VARIABLE-VALVE TIMING (VVT) SYSTEM GEAR ASSEMBLY. THESE BOLTS COULD BECOME LOOSE DUE TO ABNORMAL IMPACTS GENERATED WITHIN THE GEAR ASSEMBLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER A COLD START-UP.
Consequence: THE LOOSE BOLTS COULD CAUSE THE VVT GEAR HOUSING AND SPROCKET TO SEPARATE AND RESULT IN THE ENGINE STOPPING WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING DRIVEN, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
What Owners Should Do: TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND LEXUS DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE VVT UNIT FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.
