In another big recall for Ram heavy-duty pickup trucks and chassis cabs that marks the second within a month, more than 222,000 trucks are now being recalled for a failing high-pressure fuel pump.

Affected trucks include model-year 2019-20 2500 and 3500 HD pickups, and 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs. All come equipped with the Cummins 6.7-liter turbo-diesel engine. The high-pressure fuel pump’s failure may result in a sudden engine stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

To fix the problem, dealers will replace the pump, update the powertrain control module software, and inspect and replace additional fuel-system components, as necessary, for free. Owners will be notified starting Jan. 1, 2022. Those with questions can call Ram parent automaker Stellantis at 800-853-1403 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
