 Description of the problemApril 14, 2017 my husband was heading east on i-20 in the tyler, texas area located in smith county texas. Approaching his turn off at hwy 14. When exiting on the ramp he noticed smoke coming from the back of the truck. He looked and the service engine light was on and he began losing power. He was able to pull to a large parking area away from others. He got out of the vehicle and approached the hood when he noticed flames coming from the engine. He backed away from the vehicle at that time and called 911. Our vehicle is not a total loss. Last fall we had to replace the entire fuel system $6500 when the vehicle had less than 20,000 miles on it. Now at little over 30,000 miles it's a total loss. I have contacted chrsyler and they are suppose to send inspectors to see if they can determine the cause. Insurance inspectors are also coming this week too. I've read a lot of negatives for this truck and saw there was a recall for 4x2's for wiring issues that could short and cause a fire. Our truck was a lone star 4x4 and not under this recall. I think these vehicles need to be looked at harder!! Too many issues from too many owners.
