Vehicles Affected: Approximately 84,200 model-year 2019-20 Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks equipped with six-speed automatic transmissions
The Problem: A build up of pressure and heat inside the transmission may result in a transmission fluid leak from the dipstick tube, which may contact the turbocharger or another ignition source within the engine compartment, increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the transmission valve body separator plate and reprogram the powertrain control module for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ram manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners of the recall March 14. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
