Chrysler is recalling 443,712 model year 2013-2017 Ram 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis, 4500 Cab Chassis, and 5500 Cab Chassis trucks.

What's the Problem?

The recalled vehicles are equipped with Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel engines that have Concentric-brand water pumps without a vent hole. These water pumps may leak coolant.

A leaking water pump can increase the risk of an engine compartment fire.

What happens next?

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled trucks beginning in early November 2017. Ram dealers will then replace the defective water pumps at no cost to vehicle owners.
