Chrysler’s RAM division recalls trucks for coolant valve issue

Chrysler Posts Best Monthly Sales Since 2007

Chrysler Corporation’s RAM Trucks (formerly a part of the Dodge division, having being separated into its own brand by Sergio Marchionne) has announced a recall for their 2013 RAM pickup truck. In all, only 498 trucks are being recalled.

The newest issue concerns the coolant bypass valve, which could get stuck in a position that could prevent the coolant from flowing into the heater core. Over time, this could cause the defroster from working properly. More specifically, this is the windshield defroster, which if it fails to function, could increase the risk of the vehicle being involved in an accident.

This is the second RAM recall in recent history, the last one occurring last month for a parking brake cable that wasn’t set properly. The dealership’s technicians will replace the coolant valve at no charge. If you feel that your vehicle may be involved in this recall, you can contact your local RAM dealership.
