Risk type: Injuries
Due to inappropriate molding conditions, the density of the resin for the low-pressure fuel pump impeller is reduced, causing it to swell and deform by the fuel. Consequently, the impeller interferes with the pump cover and makes the fuel pump inoperative. As a result the engine may stall, increasing the risk of an accident. /
