Chrysler recalls 108,429 Ram pickups for fire risk

December 15, 2008

Chrysler LLC, the U.S. automaker most dependent on light trucks, is voluntarily recalling 108,429 Dodge Ram pickup trucks to fix a flaw in an engine-compartment pad that can cause a fire.

The recall affects Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups with a 6.7- liter diesel engine from model years 2007 and 2008, the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company said in a letter posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Web site.

Chrysler recorded 14 incidents of engine-compartment fires, with none resulting in accidents or injuries, said Todd Goyer, a company spokesman.

Dealers will add a bracket that supports the pad to keep it from sagging onto the exhaust gas recirculation cooler.
