Jul 07, 2021

Indus Motor Company (IMC), the Toyota car assembler in Pakistan, has asked Toyota car owners to get their vehicles checked at authorised dealerships over a suspected faulty fuel pump mechanism. It has launched its 'service campaign' for this.

According to a report published in Business Recorder, IMC CEO Ali Asghar Jamali has accepted that fuel pump mechanism in some of their cars may fail to operate.

Jamali said that the issue in the fuel pump mechanism may lead to low or no fuel supply to the car. The car may stop running or face problems in starting due to the low fuel supply to the system.

He added that the fuel pump failure rate was very low but the company has decided to replace the fuel pumps in the complete range of cars that are affected.

The company says the affected fuel pumps will be replaced free of cost at the company’s authorised dealerships.

Over 140,000 Toyota vehicles - mostly different variants of Corolla - could be affected, according to background research.

The cars that may face the issue include:

  • Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6L variant manufactured between June 2017 and June 2020
  • Toyota Corolla 1.3 and 1.8L variants manufactured between January 2018 and June 2020
  • Toyota Fortuner petrol variants manufactured between August 2017 and January 2020.
  • Toyota Land Cruiser manufactured from December 2013 to January 2019
  • Toyota Prado petrol variant manufactured from October 2013 to February 2015 and from June 2018 to April 2019
  • Toyota Hiace manufactured from June 2018 to December 2018
  • Toyota Camry manufactured from June 2018 to July 2018
