Recall 17V496000

Engine Oil Cooler Hoses Rapidly Leak Oil

Recall Details

The engine cooler hoses could fail and leak oil rapidly, causing a visibility or a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the engine oil cooler lines free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The hoses that transport engine oil to and from the engine oil cooler may fail and leak engine oil rapidly. This could allow engine oil to spray onto the windshield, obstructing clear vision which can result in an accident. Engine oil can also spray onto hot surfaces, risking a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Dodge must be performed by a Dodge dealership. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler or Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Chrysler recall number is T48.
