Honda (HMC) has recalled 437,000 U.S. vehicles for a fuel pump issue that could cause engine stalling or limit acceleration.

The recall affects 2016-2018 Acura MDXs, 2015-2019 Acura TLX V6s, and 2015-2017 Honda Accord V6s.

The company is offering to fix the fuel pump problem at no charge by providing a software update of the engine control unit or by replacing the fuel pump for free if previous engine stalling is detected during a diagnostic scan.

The fuel pump issue stems from sodium particulates, that is found in some types of gasoline in the U.S., to stick to the internal components of the fuel pumps. This can reduce the pumps’ performance and in hot weather, cause the vehicle’s acceleration to be degraded. It can also cause the engine to stall, which could result in a crash, Honda said.

The company said it has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the fuel pump issue.

Vehicle owners will be notified by Honda with a letter about the recall by late March. The company is advising owners to take their vehicle to an authorized Honda dealer for repairs.

Shares of Honda were up 0.37 percent as of 11:26 a.m. EST on Thursday.
