In America, diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee come to life because of the danger of engine fire.

Jeep will recall 34,334 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel vehicles in the United States and Canada due to the risk of powertrain fires, according to the National National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The document says the problem is with the engine exhaust gas recirculation cooler, which can crack over time due to thermal stresses. If this happens, it will allow the preheated, vaporized refrigerant to flow into the intake manifold. This refrigerant can then ignite and cause a fire.

Key symptoms of a potential problem include loss of coolant and an inoperative heater.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will contact owners and dealers directly and replace the EGR cooler free of charge. Dealers will also inspect the intake manifold if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on December 31, 2020.

This isn’t the only recall campaign run by Jeep in recent months. In June, the automaker announced a voluntary recall of several Cherokee models produced between 2014 and 2017. Then it was about a loss of traction and no problems with switching the SUV to parking mode. A total of 67,248 Cherokee models were recalled in the United States.
