Toyota is recalling 36,000 Tacoma pickup trucks in North and South America because they can stall without warning.

The recall involves Tacomas with V-6 engines from the 2016 and 2017 model years.

Toyota says an engine crankshaft timing rotor may have been produced with excessive anti-corrosion coating which could cause the crank position sensor to malfunction.

That could cause the truck to run roughly, misfire or stall.

32,000 of the recalled trucks are in the U.S. The rest are in Canada, Mexico, Bolivia and Costa Rica.
