Toyota has recalled nearly 1,000 4Runner and Camry hatchback and sedan models in the United States because of a serious engine problem that can cause damage to the vehicle.
The recall affects 1,599 vehicles in North America and is expected to be completed by the end of March.
The problem affects a series of 4Runner, Camry, Corolla, Highlander and Tacoma models.
The problem occurs when the engines are inoperable or do not have enough air to operate properly.
Toyota says the issue is not connected to a defect in the engine, so the company is not taking any action to repair the problem.
Toyota says the engines should be returned to the factory where they were manufactured.
Toyos owners who need to return their vehicles may contact the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is also working to investigate the problem and investigate if the issue has been caused by the engine itself.
