Emissions Recalls # 7631 and # 7632 -- Vapor Canister and Purge Solenoid
1994 Through 1996 Model Year Dodge Ram (BR) Trucks Equipped With a Gasoline Engine and:
^ Recall # 7631 -- Currently Located Out of California
^ Recall # 7632 -- Currently Located In California
The evaporative vapor canister on about 635,000 of the above listed vehicles, may allow charcoal to migrate from the canister to the purge solenoid and into the engine. The missing canister charcoal may allow fuel vapors to escape into the atmosphere, in violation of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) emission regulations. In addition, the migrating charcoal may plug the purge solenoid, which may cause driveability complaints and illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). To correct this condition, the vapor canister and purge solenoid must be replaced.
IMPORTANT :This recall (# 7632) is subject to the State of California Registration Renewal/Emissions Recall Enforcement Program. Involved vehicles must have the recall service completed before registration renewal.
The servicing dealer must provide a Vehicle Emission Recall Proof of Correction Form (Form No. 81-016-1053) to each California vehicle owner upon completion of the recall # 7632 service, for use as proof in renewal of the vehicle registration.
