Statement: Fuel Rail
November 18, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – FCA US LLC is recalling approximately 30,180 SUVs in the U.S. to locate an estimated 30 that may be subject to fuel leaks.
FCA US launched an investigation after a Company employee noticed and reported a fuel leak associated with a single vehicle. The probe discovered certain engines assembled during an 11-week period in first-quarter 2016 may have been subject to a manufacturing anomaly.
The anomaly – which caused inadvertent contact between a manifold fastener and the fuel rail – occurred infrequently. Resulting damage to the fuel rail may lead to leakage and, potentially, fire.
FCA US is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, customer complaints or warranty claims.
Affected are an estimated 30,183 model-year 2016 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. Also included in the recall are an estimated 2,534 vehicles in Canada; 489 in Mexico and 1,427 outside the NAFTA region.
The campaign is limited to vehicles equipped with 3.6-liter V-6 engines. All vehicles will be inspected, and their fuel rails and lower intake manifolds will be replaced, as necessary.
Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service. In the interim, customers should be alert to potential fuel leaks and contact their dealers accordingly.
Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at (800)-853-1403.
