Ram water-pump recall

by David Zatz on

Ram is recalling around half a million 2013-17 pickups and chassis cabs with Cummins diesels, after discovering that trucks built with a certain water pump could, due to a bad bearing, cause an engine bay fire.

FCA US is not aware of any related injuries or accidents, and no longer uses that water pump.

Owners may have advance warning: when the bearing starts to fail, it may activate a warning light in the gauge cluster. If this happens, it should be taken immediately to the dealer.

The company’s US Recall Information Center is at (800)-853-1403.  The recall appears to be global.
