Chrysler is recalling 28,884 model year 2014-2019 Jeep Grand Cherokees with 3.0L EcoDiesel engines.
The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler may crack and allow pre-heated vaporized coolant to enter the EGR system. This mixture may combust inside the intake manifold.
Combustion in the intake manifold can increase the risk of a fire.
What to do
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the EGR cooler free of charge. Dealers will also inspect and — as necessary – replace the intake manifold.
The recall is expected to begin December 31, 2020.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is W79.
