WASHINGTON Chrysler is recalling an estimated 5,664 2014 Ram ProMaster commercial vans because the brake fluid may leak from a torn brake hose, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"During manufacturing, a tool may have damaged one of the brake hoses which may result in a leakage of brake fluid from the brake hose," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Brake fluid leakage would result in a reduction of brake performance, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash."

Chrysler told federal safety regulators that it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built from July 1, 2013 through November 15, 2013.

Chrysler traced the condition to an electric assembly tool that caught and tore the brake hose as the tool was removed from the torque operation during manufacturing, according to documents filed with the federal government.

Ram dealers will inspect and replace the brake hoses. The recall is expected to begin in March. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: This recall gets going in short order, but if you are experiencing problems with your 2014 Ram ProMaster, take it into the dealership immediately.
