American Special Vehicles has recalled the 2014-2019 Ram 1500 diesel to fix a problem with the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system.

According to the company, a manufacturing defect means the EGR cooler might crack and cause coolant to leak into the intake manifold.

Should the problem occur, there’s a risk the car will catch fire.

  • A total of 438 cars are included in the recall
