02V226
On certain minivans, sedans, coupes, and sport utility vehicles equipped with V6 engines, a timing belt tensioner pulley on the water pump is misaligned and could cause the timing belt to contact a bolt on the cylinder head. Eventually the belt could be damaged and fail. If the timing belt breaks, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the water pump, and if it is one of the defective pumps, the water pump and timing belt will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 30, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1099 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.

Repairs were made from March 9 through July 27, 2001. Some of the noncompliant buckles were mislabeled and redistributed to Acura dealers to be used as recall repair parts.

A transmission case bolt can loosen and fall out allowing the transmission to disengage from the differential. The vehicle could lose power to the drive wheels without warning. Also, shifting the transmission into the Park position would not lock the wheels, and a parked vehicle could move unexpectedly if the parking brake is not set.
Dealers will install a redesigned bolt. Owner notification began Aug. 30, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

On certain passenger vehicles, during the manufacturing process, oil was applied to the brake pedal assembly to prevent rust. This oil can leak into the brake stop switch and contaminate the electrical contacts. Eventually, the brake lights will not illuminate when the brakes are applied, which increases the risk of a crash.
Dealers will clean any excess oil from the pedal assembly and replace the stop switch. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began June 19, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
