Ram 1500’s 2021 engine may stall
131,700 Chrysler 2021 Ram 1500 vehicles with 5.7L eTorque engines are being recalled. A faulty fuel mixture in the engine of the affected vehicles’ powertrain control modules may cause an engine stall.
According to Chrysler, there has only been one collision with no known injuries that may be related to this problem, but the company estimates that every vehicle has the problem.
On June 2, notices will start to be sent to impacted owners. On impacted vehicles, dealers will provide a free software calibration update for the powertrain control module.
Engine stalling from a Jeep or Ram fuel pump failure
Because the high-pressure fuel pumps in 45,711 Jeep and Ram models with 3.0L diesel engines could malfunction and cause an engine stall, increasing the danger of a collision, Chrysler is recalling these models.
Brake fluid leaks in Chevrolet Silverado pickups might increase the risk of fire; park outside
The brake pressure-sensor assembly on 40,428 Chevrolet trucks manufactured by General Motors may leak brake fluid. The leak might result in an electrical short-circuit, which would heat up the circuit and raise the possibility of a fire occurring when the vehicle is moving or parked.
GM claimed it is not aware of any incidents involving crashes or injuries, and it started looking into the issue in August 2022 in response to reports of a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Medium-Duty vehicle catching fire. Affected owners will start receiving notices on May 29, according to GM.
Dealers will evaluate the wiring harness and replace the master cylinder pressure sensor free of charge. GM asserted that there aren’t enough parts on hand and that it will let owners know when they become available. Affected owners are encouraged to park outdoors and away from structures until the fix is finished.
Call 1-800-222-1020 to reach Chevrolet customer service. The recall’s GM number is N222375270.
welding issues with the driver seats of Nissan and Infiniti
12,400 Nissan Rogue, Pathfinder, and Infiniti QX60 vehicles are being recalled by Nissan due to a potential issue with the driver’s powered seat’s connection to the seat frame. A driver may not be securely secured in a crash if the seat frame welds come apart from the rear inboard seat bracket.
The tyres on the 2023 Nissan Titan and Frontier could be torn.
According to an NHTSA recall report, Nissan is recalling 4,249 of its Titan and Frontier cars because the tyres may have an inner bead rip. While driving, the tear may quickly reduce tyre pressure, which could result in a loss of control and an elevated crash risk.
Damage to the brake system may occur in Mazda automobiles.
According to an NHTSA recall report, Mazda is recalling 2,410 of its CX-30 and CX-50 vehicles because the hydraulic control unit for the anti-lock brake system may be harmed. Damage to the system can lower braking power and lengthen the stopping distance required for the vehicle.
BMW safety belt problems
Seat belts in second-row seats may have been squeezed by an interior trim panel during vehicle production, which could make them malfunction. As a result, BMW is recalling 1,465 of its 2023 X1 xDrive28i and X1 M35i vehicles.
