Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling 357 2018 Jeep Cherokee and Compass SUVs because they’re at risk for engine stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In these vehicles, the 2.4L engine may have a cracked oil pump housing that can lead to oil pump failure and stalling, NHTSA said. Dealers will inspect the oil pump and replace it if necessary. There will be no charge for this service.
Vehicle owners impacted by the recall will begin receiving mail notification in mid-December. When remedy parts become available at dealerships, FCA will mail a second notice so repair appointments can be made.
Vehicle owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403.
