Chrysler is recalling certain 2014 model year Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines that may suffer from loss of oil pressure. The same recall includes 2013 model year Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 sedans.
“Due to abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings, these engines may have a loss of engine oil pressure, possibly resulting in an engine stall or engine failure. If the engine stalls while driving it may increase the risk of a crash,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in a statement.

About 522 Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge vehicle are affected. The recall will begin this month, when Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module, free of charge.

Customers can contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753 (recall campaign number N52) and the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
