On certain vehicles, the cooler for Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) module may develop an internal leak and coolant could mix with diesel engine soot/sediment.
In rare circumstances, this condition could result in smouldering particles and lead to the melting of the intake manifold, increasing the risk of a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the EGR cooler, and if necessary, replace it.
If it is determined that the EGR cooler has leaked internally, the intake manifold will also be replaced.
The EGR pipe connecting the cooler to the manifold will be cleaned.
Note: An operator may be alerted to this condition by one or more of the following symptoms: A warning symbol in the instrument cluster displaying a loss of engine coolant, a reduction in engine power, an unpleasant odour (exhaust gas), an unusual noise from the engine compartment, and/or smoke from the engine compartment.
