GMC Terrains Recalled for Fuel Pump Flow Issue

Feb. 8, 2023

GM has recalled some 2021 and 2022 GMC Terrain crossovers due to an issue with the fuel pump module.

Feb. 8, 2023–GM has issued a safety recall for some 2021 and 2022 GMC Terrain crossovers due to a fuel pump flow issue, GM Authority reports.

GM notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the fuel pump not adequately transferring fuel to the engine, making it possible for the vehicle to stall.

The defective fuel pump module has caused an “inconsistent flow of fuel to the engine,” which can result in the engine not having enough fuel to keep running. This can cause a variety of issues, from the check engine light coming on to failing to start, as well as the engine stalling.

The NHTSA was first notified on January 19, 2023. As of early February, it is still pending, preventing GM from being able to conduct repairs on affected vehicles. 

2021 and 2022 Chevy Equinoxes will be affected by the recall as well. It is not yet known how many vehicles have been affected.

GM will be sending letters to owners of vehicles affected by the recall. The defective fuel pump modules will be replaced at the dealership, but as of early February 2023, the parts are not available.
