The engine block may suffer damage and leak oil

Forest River is recalling model year 2020-2021 Dynamax Isata vehicles.

Inadequate warmup protection can cause a lack of oil film on the engine connecting rod bearings while the engine is reaching operating temperature. This can result in engine damage and connecting rod failure, which could potentially puncture the engine block.

A damaged engine block may leak oil, which can contact hot engine or exhaust components, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and Chrysler dealers will reprogram the engine calibration software to enhance the engine warm up protection free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin November 6, 2020.

Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-1234.Chrysler's number for this recall is W57.
