Ram recalls over 107,000 Ram 1500 diesel engines in the US after reports of several fires and four minor injuries related to the problem.
Fiat Chrysler's parent company Ram stated that microscopic cracks in the exhaust gas recirculation system used to reduce NOx emissions could allow the coolant fluid to leak out and increase the risk of fire. There are no incident related issues.
The problem does not affect the latest generation Ram 1500, introduced last year, on 2014-2019 trucks sold in 2019 as the Ram 1500 Classic.
Fiat Chrysler stated that injuries were sustained when owners attempted to extinguish fires themselves. Reminder notifications will be sent shortly. In the meantime, the car manufacturer recommends owners monitor their vehicle's coolant levels and contact their dealer if it is constantly low.
Approximately 50,000 additional vehicles are being towed to other markets. MILLION PURCHASES WHY TAGGETS CAN OPEN INDEPENDENTLY
