Toyota is recalling 31,824 2016- and 2017-model year Tacoma pickup trucks, each equipped with a six-cylinder engine, because they’re at risk for stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

These trucks have a crank position sensor that may malfunction, potentially resulting in an engine stall that increases the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.

Toyota dealers will replace the crank position sensor with an improved design. There will be no charge for this service. 

The recall is expected to begin July 17. Truck owners can reach Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is H0H.
