2013 Dodge Avenger RecallsEngine Stall and/or Failure
522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.
Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.
The vehicle emission control system includes a fuel vapor canister that stores excess fuel vapors and then releases them to be burned when the engine is running. A broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly could allow liquid fuel to enter the vapor canister, resulting in an engine stalling condition and/or a fuel leak. Having the engine stall while driving increases the risk of a crash and any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank assembly on affected vehicles and replace a damaged control valve to correct this concern.
