11:53 pm ET

SEOUL -September 15, 2002 Dow Jones reported that Kia Motors Corp. , South Korea's second largest car maker, will voluntarily recall 10,137 units of its minivan model Carens 2.0 Diesel, following its discovery of a defect in the model's fuel pump, the Ministry of Construction and Transportation said Monday.

The recall will apply to those Carens made from March 12 to Aug. 31 this year, the ministry said in a statement.

Kia Motors will recall the affected Carens sold in South Korea only.

The company will replace the related parts for free. The recall begins Wednesday and lasts a year, the ministry statement said.

Diesel oil with a high level of sulfur content could cause rapid abrasion of a part installed in the fuel pump and may lead to a cutoff of fuel supply, said the ministry.
