Chrysler is on the search for 16 vehicles sold last year in North America, from a batch of 1,934 2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger models, for a safety recall.

The vehicles affected were built over a five-day period last fall and potentially have damaged fuel tank control valves. According to the American automaker, a routine maintenance operation led the tank supplier to discover it had shipped damaged goods.

Chrysler dealerships will inspect all vehicles subject to the recall and if damaged control valves are found, they will replace the fuel-tank assemblies at no cost to the customers. Damaged control valves could cause engine stalling or even fuel leakage.

The automaker stated that it has not been aware of any accidents, injuries, or complaints related to the recall. Affected owners will be contacted directly.
