Models: Dodge Diesel BR/BE 1998 built before 04/29/98 (MDH 0429XX)
Chrysler is recalling about 25,000 were built with defective low pressure fuel tubes. The low pressure fuel line may fracture and leak. Notices have been sent by CC to owners and dealers to check unsold stock.
This is the line from the top of the fuel filter to the side of the injection pump. The ends of the tube are made for banjo fittings.
"inspect the low pressure fuel line between the fuel filter and the fuel injection pump (fig 1). If the tube has a compression fitting in the center (just left of the bend) it must be replaced. If the tube has a short section of rubber hose in the center (just left of the bend) no further action is necessary." Comments within the parenthesis are mine. If in doubt check with your CC Dodge dealer.
Instruction for those stranded beside the road with a computer and web access (right!).
Thanks to Bob Bergevin for supplying this Recall information.
