K&N Engineering, Inc. (K&N), has determined that the air delivery tubes in certain K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kits sold for aftermarket installation on certain Dodge trucks and SUVs contain a defect related to motor vehicle safety. K&N is conducting a voluntary recall program to replace those parts.

ITEMS COVERED BY THIS RECALL

The Fuel Injection Performance Kits covered by this recall have the following K&N part numbers: 57-1509, 57-1511, 57-1511-1, 57-1517, 57-1517-1, 57-1527, and 57-1530. In addition, this recall applies to certain air intake systems sold as "Mopar Performance Parts," with part numbers P5007069 and P5007070. These Kits were sold as replacement parts for certain Dodge trucks and SUVs, as set out below. Of course, only a very small portion of the identified vehicles will have one of the recalled Kits.

WHY WE ARE TAKING THIS ACTION

K&N has discovered that the air delivery tubes in the covered kits, which were produced with either polypropylene or super linear polyethylene, have durability problems that can cause pieces of plastic to break away from the tube. Those pieces of plastic could enter the vehicle engine, where they could possibly cause the throttle to become temporarily jammed in the open position. This could potentially lead to a loss of control, which could result in a crash. Therefore, K&N is offering replacement air delivery tubes made with cross linked high density polyethylene, at no charge.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO

If you have one of the vehicles listed above that have a non-factory air intake system or kit installed, a visual inspection will easily identify whether you have a Kit covered by this recall. The recalled parts have a multi-color trademark printed on the top of the air delivery tube that reads either "K&N" or "Mopar Performance Parts," as shown in the photographs below (See Photo 5).

If the air delivery tube has the "Mopar Performance Parts" trademark, the Kit is covered by this recall, and you should contact K&N at (800) 858-3333 to obtain a replacement part free of charge.

If the air delivery tube has the "K&N" trademark, you will need to examine it to determine whether it needs to be replaced. On the bottom side of the tube is a set of markings; if you can see a marking P#X (where the # stands for a number), the Kit is not covered by this recall (See Photo 6). All other K&N Kits on the vehicle models specified above are covered by the recall, and you should contact us at (800) 858-3333 to obtain a replacement part free of charge.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact K&N at (800) 858-3333.

K&N sincerely regrets any inconvenience that this recall may cause you, but we want to assure that any possible safety problems in our products are remedied promptly.
