Approximately 107,900 model-year 2014-19 Ram 1500 diesel-powered pickup trucks are being recalled due to an internal investigation finding microscopic cracks in some exhaust gas recirculation coolers, which could allow coolant to escape and, in rare circumstances, pose an engine fire risk.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
A remedy has not yet been developed, but FCA said owners are advised to monitor coolant levels and contact their dealer if the levels are consistently low.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
