2 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2001 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 11/01/2020

My car smells strongly of gas. Hunting for the cause I noticed gas coming from a hole under the car about right where the fuel pump is located in the back seat. After removing the back seat I noticed the fuel pump is pretty much sitting in a puddle of gasoline. You can see a slow movement of gasoline coming off the top of the fuel pump. This is a safety concern especially being that we are smokers.

7 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2018 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 07/30/2020

My car makes like a clicking noise intermittently while accelerating. When it's making this noise it has stopped accelerating. I have to release my foot off the gas for a couple seconds then when I accelerate, it is back to normal. This does not happen every day anymore but at one point it was happening pretty much at least once a day. I took it to the Honda dealership in October 2020 nd November 2020 and asked them to find out what's wrong. I told them it may be the fuel pump/system or something with the accelerator, and preceded to tell them about the noise. Both times they could not recreate the noise and therefore could not fix or diagnose the issue. It happens when accelerating from a stop, on a hill, accelerating quickly, and sometimes just good old fashioned regular accelerating. It has made me lose trust in the car like I could be turning or passing someone and it happens when everyone ond is critical. Needless to say I have been accelerating very slowly to try to limit the amount of times it happens but it still happens. City streets and highways.

9 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2002 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 11/26/2019

2002 Honda Civic lx. Single overhead non vtec 1. 7 l. Current mileage 181,000 I noticed every so often that I would get a smell of gas on this vehicle. Whoever it was more pronoun when the vehicle was running that I would smell gas,. After some research I decided to remove the back seat and remove the fuel inspection cover apparently my online research hold up a known issue with Honda Civics having cracked top fuel pump housing aka fuel filter, Honda says you have to replace the whole part. Personally I can understand how this is not a defect because something that is designed to withstand the elements and being an environment where there is gasoline. Should not crack. If fuel is leaking out of the house and next to an electrical connector? wouldn't this be considered a safety defect?.

11 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2002 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 08/22/2017

The fuel pump assembly at the top of the fuel tank just under the rear passenger seat develops cracks because of it being made of plastic. This happened on my car. Quite a bit of fuel leaks out of these cracks when operating the automobile. The average person might not ever know this if it was always parked outside. The potential for fire or explosion is rather pronounced because of where it sits. If Honda is going to use plastic in its fuel delivery system then let them make sure it doesn't leak years down the road. I have read about this on the internet from other 2002 Civic owners. My Civic is not an si but it was the only 02 Civic listed on your site . We had the pump pump assembly replaced. It is very possible that this issue could lead to terrible accidents to other owners.

12 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2005 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 06/21/2017

Filled fuel tank on my way to work, after driving to work on the freeway could smell fuel, thought it could just be residual on my hands since I just filled up. Went to lunch and smelled fuel again only stronger now, when I backed out of the parking space to return to work I noticed a large wet spot under my car, got out and looked under my car, could see bottom of fuel tank was wet. Drove to work, removed my rear seat to access top of tank, noticed fuel was leaking out of top of fuel pump when the key is turned on, went to Honda dealer near my work and purchased a pump, parts associate mentioned they fail regularly, seems to me there should be some sort of recall for a fuel leak that happens regularly.

Noticeable gas smell, especially when engine turned off. Diagnosed by independent mechanic. 2" crack on plastic cover of fuel pump module. Repair cost over $400.

A 6-10 mpg decrease became obvious at this time as well.

19 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2006 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 11/06/2014

Fuel pumps are leaking from the top of pump housing and are filling up the cubby hole that they sit in, with gas. This pump has a access hole under the rear seat and fumes can be smelled inside and outside of the cars, with some leaking on the ground. It also is know to be on some odyssey as well. If parked in the garage overnight the fumes could fill the area and be ignited by a water heater or some other source. I have replaced many of these pumps over the years and Honda dealers are doing the same with no concern that they are a defect and could cause a potential safety risk.

21 Other Fuel System Pump problem of the 2003 Honda Civic

Failure Date: 08/27/2012

My wife and I have owned our 2003 Honda Civic since it was new. Anyhow, a couple of weeks ago my wife noticed a very strong odor of gasoline from both in and around the vehicle. After a few days of looking under the car and not able to detect the problem, I removed the rear seat and noticed a large amount of gasoline under the seat. I removed the hatch to the fuel pump and noticed that the fuel pump assembly had numerous hair line cracks on the top area and when the car was in the on position, fuel was pouring out and going under the rear seat bottom. I have since ordered a replacement fuel pump assembly unit. Anyhow, this a very dangerous situation and could have had deadly effects as the electronics that charge the fuel pump are right where the gas was leaking. Additionally, if the driver of the car was a smoker, who knows what may have taken place. This issue is clearly a design flaw and I'm sure additional years of this model Civic have this same fuel pump assembly unit. The part number 17045-s5a-a31 (kautex.
