THE ACCC has officially issued a recall for a total of 1899 Toyota LandCruiser Prado models due to a fuel leak issue.
The problem centres on a fault at production, which may allow the fuel inlet pipe to leak fuel as it supplies fuel to the diesel fuel injector common rail. This could lead to an engine stall, which increases the risk of accident or injury.
Toyota Australia initiated the recall back on September 26, saying in a statement: “This recall is due to a production issue which has the potential to affect the tightening torque of the fuel pipe that supplies the common rail. If this were to occur, fuel may leak from the pipe resulting in an engine stall.”

According to Toyota Australia, there are no symptoms or warnings to indicate a fault and the fix - replacing the fuel pipe and associated clamp with new parts – will be free of charge and take about three to four hours.
Toyota Australia advises owners of affected vehicles with any questions to contact their local Toyota dealer or call the Toyota Recall Support Helpline on 1800 987 366.
The Toyota HiAce was also affected by the same recall.
