Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 167,000 Acura TSX cars to fix power steering hoses that could deteriorate and cause a fire under the hood.

The recall, announced Friday, involves TSXs from the 2004-2008 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website that high temperatures under the hood could cause the power steering hose to crack and leak power steering oil.

The oil can leak onto a hot exhaust pipe and cause smoke and a burning smell, or even a fire.

Honda spokesman Chris Naughton said the automaker had received one report of a minor fire connected to the issue. He said there have been no reports of accidents or injuries.

The Japanese automaker said the recall is expected to begin in late May. Dealers will replace the power steering hose and seal it at no charge.

Owners can contact Acura Client Services at (800) 382-2238.
