Pickuptrucks.com reported Wednesday that Chrysler is recalling select 2007-2009 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty (2500/3500) models equipped with the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. There is little information given other than the fact that there have been reports of the CTD producing excessive amounts of soot, potentially damaging a variety of pricey engine components such as the turbocharger.
The fix entails nothing more than a basic computer reflash which you can expect to take 30 minutes to an hour – less if you have a friend at a Dodge dealership. Those Ram HD owners who live California will have to provide proof of service for the issue before you will be able to renew your registration. For more information on this recall contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
