WASHINGTON — Chrysler is recalling an estimated 522 vehicles, including the 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot, 2013 Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 equipped with 2.4-liter engines for a potential loss of engine oil pressure that could lead to an engine stall or engine failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Due to abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings, these engines may have a loss of engine oil pressure, possibly resulting in an engine stall or engine failure," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the engine stalls while driving, it may increase the risk of a crash."

The automaker told federal safety regulators that the abrasive debris is "consistent with the particles used in polishing tape during the engine manufacturing process for balance shaft modules."

Chrysler said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the recall.

Chrysler dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module. The recall will begin in December. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the aforementioned Chrysler vehicles, you'll want to have it checked out with your dealer as soon as you get your recall notice.

Comments

  • If it could cause the engine to stall and possibly cause a wreck, why are they waiting until December? I have a 2014 Jeep Compass, and I personally think they should go ahead and fix this problem before it does stall and make me have a wreck.
