— Chrysler is recalling about 560 model year 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks, and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Cab Chassis vehicles equipped with diesel engines and fuel lines that may leak fuel into the engine compartments.
A single ignition source could easily cause a fire.
Fiat Chrysler (FCA) opened an investigation in May after a report of leaking fuel lines at the diesel engine supplier, Cummins. The leak was determined to come from a fuel line with incorrectly formed end fittings that didn't properly seal.
Although the leaks consist of "drips," the fuel can still hit engine components and start engine compartment fires.
About 498 Ram trucks are recalled in the U.S. and 63 are recalled in Canada.
The Ram truck recall is expected to begin August 16, 2019, when dealers will replace any affected fuel lines.
Customers with questions should call 800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is V76.
