Chrysler is recalling approximately 138,645 model-year 2014-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2014-2019 Ram 1500 vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. A high-pressure fuel pump failure could introduce internal debris into the fuel system, potentially resulting in fuel starvation. Fuel starvation may cause an unexpected loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 29, 2022. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the high-pressure fuel pump and inspect and replace additional fuel components, if necessary.
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.
