Ram recalls over 107,000 diesel-powered Ram 1500 pickups in the United States following reports of multiple fires and four minor injuries related to the problem.
Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler said that microscopic cracks in the recycling system used to reduce NOx emissions can cause coolant to leak and increase the risk of fire. There are no accidents associated with the problem.
This issue does not affect the latest generation of Ram 1500 introduced last year on 2014-2019 trucks marketed in 2019 as the Ram 1500 Classic.
Fiat Chrysler said injuries were sustained when the owners tried to extinguish fires themselves. Invitation notifications will be sent soon. In the meantime, the car manufacturer recommends that the owners keep an eye on the vehicle's coolant level and contact the dealer if it is constantly low.
Approximately 50,000 additional vehicles are recalled in other markets.
