Honda recalls 886,815 Odyssey Minivans for a defective fuel pump which could potentially cause a fire.

Honda is recalling 886,815 Odyssey minivans in the U.S. to fix fuel pump filters that can leak gasoline and potentially cause a fire, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

On 2005-2010 Odyssey models, the cover on the fuel pump strainer -- which filters contaminants out of the fuel before sending it to the engine -- can crack and lead to fuel smells or leaking fuel.

Honda said it has received at least 187 warranty claims for this issue and first investigated the problem in October 2012 after noticing a high volume of replacement fuel pump parts. Honda said its fuel pump strainer cover was prone to acid deterioration and weakness due high temperatures and will not have a new part available until sometime in the summer.
