General Motors has issued a recall for 40,000 cars and SUVs because of a faulty fuel pump. 

The recall affects the following vehicles

2007 through 2009 models of the Chevrolet Cobalt
2007 Chevrolet Equinox
2007 through 2009 Pontiac G-5
2007 Pontiac Torrent
2007 Saturn Ion

GM says the fuel pumps in those vehicles could crack and cause a potentially dangerous fuel leak. 

The vehicles were sold or registered in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. 

Owners can get a free replacement by contacting a GM dealer. 

Last week GM recalled more than 400,000 sedans because of a transmission problem that causes cars to move when they’re in park.

That recall included 2007 to 2010 Chevrolet Malibus, Pontiac G6s and Saturn Auras made in the U.S., Canada and Mexico due to breakage in transmission cables.

The Detroit Free Press reports that GM knows of four crashes but no injuries from that recall.
