    Ram recalls 494,417 trucks for safety issue


    DETROIT (AP) —

    Fiat Chrysler is recalling almost half a million Ram heavy-duty pickups and medium-duty trucks because their water pumps could be defective.

    The recall involves Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs from the 2013 to 2017 model years. All 494,417 of the vehicles involved have 6.7-liter engines.

    Most of the trucks were sold in the U.S., but 46,220 are in Canada and 4,485 are in other markets.





    Fiat Chrysler says a water pump bearing can overheat under certain conditions, potentially leading to an engine fire.

    The company isn't aware of any injuries or accidents related to the defect. It no longer uses the type of water pump involved in the recall.

    Fiat Chrysler will notify customers and dealers will fix or replace the water pumps for free.

    Yup why I love my 94 chevy, has a lot of miles seen its days but still runs needs work but paid for easy to repair and don't have this new fandagled computer controlled junk and issues the today trucks have. Plus its heavy all metal truck, not this light weight thin metal and plastic stuff.

    So far so good. It shifts a little hard from time to time into 2nd but that's the worst of it.

    Mine does that or did. But I wanted it to shift harder into second before I wouldn't it slide or slip into second and I didn't like that felt like it was slipping into second and wanted a firmer shift, plus when I stab it and it shifts into second you get a little bark from back end, :btruck::mtruck:

    They must have built them better than in 93 and these Trans shops just barely repair ones Trans when you take it in that's why I went in the direction I did I pray I have better luck now but even at that with 203K I trust my truck 100%

    I don't know, @dirtrider73068 has mentioned in the past that I'm lucky. That these trans usually need rebuilding at/ around 100k. I haven't really pulled any huge loads with my rig since I've owned it. Maybe that's been my saving grace......?


    I think DR is just jealous.... :rofl:
