Carparts.com is recalling 3,450 Replacement and Evan-Fischer oil filter housings, part number RD31260001.
The welded plugs inside the oil filter housing may not have a proper seal, which can result in an oil leak.
An oil leak in the presence of an ignition source, such as hot engine components, can increase the risk of a fire. A loss of oil can also result in the engine seizing, increasing the risk of a crash.
Carparts.com will replace the oil filter housing or provide a full refund free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 26, 2022.
