FCA recalls HD pickups, chassis cabs over potential engine compartment fire”

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the company that manufactures Dodge vehicles, is recalling an estimated 443,712 heavy-duty pick up trucks in the US because of a potential fire hazard.

FCA said it would advise affected customers when service becomes available.

The recall is limited to vehicles equipped with optional eight-passenger seating.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints.

Also subject to the campaign are an estimated 1,908 vehicles in Canada.

Fiat Chrysler says a water pump bearing can overheat under certain conditions, potentially leading to an engine fire. All 494,417 of the vehicles involved have 6.7-liter engines.

A warning light may activate if the water pump has been compromised, so customers should contact their dealer if a warning light is illuminated. It no longer uses the type of water pump involved in the recall.

The American automaker is aware of a small number of incidents involving fires and damage, but none extended beyond the immediate area of the water pump.
