NOTE:  This recall applies only to the above trucks equipped with a 6.7L Cummins diesel engine (Sales Code ETL or ETN or ETM).

 

NOTE:  Some vehicles above may have been identified as not involved in this recall and therefore have been excluded from this recall.

 

IMPORTANT:  Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer new vehicle inventory.  Federal law requires you to complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery.  Dealers should also consider this requirement to apply to used vehicle inventory and should perform this recall on vehicles in for service.  Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.

 

Subject

The diesel engine on about 560 of the above vehicles may have been manufactured with fuel lines with incorrectly formed end fittings that may not properly seal to other fuel system components. Fuel lines that do not properly seal may lead to a fuel leak in the engine compartment. A fuel leak in the engine compartment may lead to a vehicle fire, which may increase risk of injury to occupants and persons outside the vehicle, as well as property damage.

 

Repair

Cummins will send a representative to inspect the fuel line date codes. If any of the fuel line date codes are found to be within the suspect build population, the suspect line(s) will be replaced.

 

Alternate Transportation

Dealers should attempt to minimize customer inconvenience by placing the owner in a loaner vehicle if inspection determines that fuel tube replacement is required and the vehicle must be held overnight.

 

Parts Information

Do NOT place an order, parts will be manually allocated by MOPAR.

 

Parts Return

No parts return required for this campaign.
