Statement: Engine Cover

April 9, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Chrysler Group LLC will recall approximately 7,000 model-year 2013 heavy-duty pickups – almost all of which are in dealer hands – to replace their engine covers.

Routine, post-production testing revealed a cover for the 6.7L diesel engine was found to have less heat resistance than intended. The cover is being replaced, at no cost to customers, by one with an alternate design.

Affected are Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups. Just over 500 are in the hands of U.S. customers; 50 are with Canadian customers and the remaining vehicles are unsold.

Chrysler Group is unaware of any injuries, accidents or customer complaints associated with the issue.
