Fiat Chrysler vehicles with 2.4-liter Tigershark engines can pollute the US environment too much.

About 1 million Fiat Chrysler cars with four-cylinder engines may emit too many harmful substances, and the American company is working with the government to recall them. Excessive contamination was found during internal tests on vehicles with 2.4-liter Tigershark engines, according to FCA Fiat. The engines are dated at least 2013 and are used in several Jeep SUVs, as well as in other vehicles of the concern. FCA says it is working to identify specific models and is developing a repair plan.

“Upon completion of this work, we intend to review our proposed solution with the EPA and will likely initiate a recall campaign. With age, some vehicles exceed operational emission requirements based on driving cycle and mileage, ”Fiat Chrysler said in a statement.

The vehicles and years of manufacture to which the recall applies were not indicated in the application. Cars that use 2.4-liter Tigershark engines include the current Jeep Compass, Cherokee and Renegade SUVs, the Fiat 500X, and the discontinued compact Dodge Dart and the mid-size Chrysler 200. According to Fiat Chrysler, the engines are installed in five of the 21 the current model of the company’s line, but in some cases they have been replaced by newer engines.
