RECALL: 60,413 Units Of EcoDiesel Models For Possible High-Pressure Fuel Pump Failure!

Stellantis (FCA US, LLC) has announced a safety recall on certain 2020 to 2022 model year Ram 1500 (DT), Jeep® Wrangler (JL), and Jeep Gladiator (JT) vehicles equipped with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine for possible fuel pump failures.

Some of those vehicles listed may have been built with a high-pressure fuel pump (HPFP) that could fail prematurely. An HPFP failure may introduce internally failed component debris into the fuel system potentially causing fuel starvation. Fuel starvation may result in an unexpected loss of motive power, which
can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.

The recall affects the following vehicles…

My truck has been at the dealership for a month with no known fix and no parts available. No recall notification was sent out prior to it just dying in traffic.

There is metal throughout the fuel system and the earliest the dealer might receive parts is in the 4th quarter. FCA LLC is completely useless. Suggestions? I have requested a buyback but I can't get anyone to answer the phone or return my call in Detroit.
