- As a
preventative measure, the Chrysler Group will recall 2000-2002 Jeep®
Wranglers, 2000-2001 Jeep Cherokees and 1999-2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees
with 4.0 Liter engines to reduce the possibility of debris accumulation
in the engine compartment that could potentially cause a fire. There
have been no accidents or injuries related to this issue.
Chrysler Group determined a design change made to the engine manifolds
modified the underhood airflow, which in rare cases could lead to
debris accumulation in the engine compartment. While this situation
is uncommon, the Chrysler Group will attach a shield in the manifold
area to prevent this from occurring.
