Dodge Recalls Hellcats for Potential Fuel Leak

Dodge Recalls Hellcats for Potential Fuel Leak

Chrysler’s Hellcat performance cars may be blindingly fast but they can’t outrun a recall. These 707-hp versions of the Dodge Challenger coupe and Charger sedan may have an issue with leaking fuel.

Obviously this poses a fire risk and is a major safety concern. The potential problem was discovered by a dealer while conduction a pre-delivery inspection of a new Hellcat that had been shipped in from the factory. It’s reported that 2,211 vehicles are affected.

The leak is likely coming from seals located near the engine’s fuel rail, the component that delivers gasoline (and lots of it) to its fuel injectors. These cars are powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 707 ponies

Concerned owners can reach out to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles through their customer information center by calling 1-800-583-1403. Representatives said there have been no consumer complaints, accidents or injuries related to this issue. Drivers will be notified of the recall by mail.

    thank Dog the dealer noticed it because nobody would notice a fuel leak when simply putting the pedal down emulates said fuel leak.
    *imagine if GM recalled deadly ignition switches back when it was still just a “potential problem” and limited to 2,211 cars
