Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will recall 34,633 examples of the 2016 Dodge Durango and 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee for a potential fuel leak.

According to FCA only the 3,6 liter V6 units are part of this action. The campaign includes 30,180 of them in the United States, 2,534 in Canada, 489 in Mexico, and 1,427 outside the NAFTA region. But FCA told that only 30% of these vehicles will have the problem but it needs to inspect them all to be sure.

FCA also told that during the assembly at the Saltillo Engine Plant in Mexico may have been damage to the fuel rail crossover tube for these V6 powerplants. Long-term thermal cycling, fuel exposure, and pressure pulsations can cause a fuel leak to develop. In a worst case scenario, this issue could lead to a fire.

FCA discovered this problem during an FCA employee noticed a fuel leak on a single car. After further investigations of uninstalled engine they have found 21 with damaged parts. FCA U.S. is not aware of any field reports of people reporting this problem, and the company has no warranty claims about it, either.
