Subaru and Toyota are recalling more than 400,000 vehicles to fix a faulty engine part that they say could cause vehicles to stall while driving.

No accidents related to the fault have been confirmed, but 94 cases of malfunction have been reported, including engine start failure.

As explained, the valve springs in affected engines could fracture at high loads, leading to issues such as the engine stalling, abnormal engine noise and the inability to restart the engine. The recall will also include the FR-S sports coupe call now called the Toyota 86.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Toyota said its vehicles account for around 80,000 of the total.

The recall involves the Forester sport-utility vehicle and Impreza compact, as well as the BRZ sports auto.

The company said it would contact affected US owners by mail starting in December. The company is recalling cars made between January 2012 and September 2013.

Subaru said 101,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in Japan.

The engine recall affects vehicles made from Jan 16, 2012, to May 14, 2013. Subaru of America has not officially announced the recall but will likely be contacting USA customers starting in December.

Subaru makes the BRZ, FR-S and GT86, which all share an engine with the Forester and the Impreza.
