Over 708,000 Honda and Acura vehicles are being recalled to replace their DENSO fuel pumps. The pumps have a defect that'll cause them to stop pumping fuel to the engine. You don't need to be a mechanic to see why that's a problem.

- The pump's impellers are shipping with tiny cracks that absorb fuel over time. This expands and deforms the impeller until it just stops working.
