FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE - DELIVERY - HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS
77V212000CHRYSLER CORPORATION V (Vehicle)2400001/19/1978MFRCHRYSLER GROUP LLC11/28/197710/12/1979
Defect SummaryThe fuel tubes (fuel tank to pump) on the involved vehicles may be routed such that tube to underbody reinforcement flange interference may result during vehicle operation. tube abrasion caused by such interference may result in fuel leakage.
Consequence Summary
Corrective SummaryDealer will reroute the fuel tube or install a new fuel tube, if damaged, without charge to owner.
NotesVehicle description: light trucks.system: fuel; fuel lines.consequences of defect: leaking fuel in the presence of a source of ignitioncould lead to a vehicle fire and passenger injuries.

Defect Summary
Consequence Summary
Corrective SummaryDealer will inspect the fuel tank vent systems for blockage and correct, if necessary. fuel tanks will be inspected for cracking of the front panel and replaced, if necessary.
NotesVehicle description: light trucks.system: fuel; fuel tank.consequences of defect: the fuel tanks on the involved vehicles may containcracks which may permit fuel or vapor leakage into the cab interior. this isdue to internal pressure buildup caused by blockage of the tank vent system.consequences of defect: if an ignition source is present when leakage occurs, afire could result and cause personal injury to passengers.
SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC - FOUNDATION COMPONENTS - HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS
78V188000CHRYSLER CORPORATION V (Vehicle)140010/11/1978MFRCHRYSLER GROUP LLC08/29/197810/12/1979
Defect SummaryDue to improper material construction the hydro-boost fluid return hose may not be capable of withstanding the temperatures and/or pressures experienced with the hydro-boost system. also, the hydro-boost fluid high pressure hose assembly may have been mislocated, allowing the assembly to contact the frame side rail. abrasion resulting from continued contact along with improper material construction may cause pressure hose failure. either of these conditions may cause hydro-boost fluid leakage, resulting in the loss of power assist for the steering and braking systems. complete loss of steering or braking will not occur since both systems would revert to manual operation.
Consequence Summary
Corrective SummaryThe dealer will install a hydro-boost fluid return hose constructed form the proper material, positioning the hose assembly to ensure adequate clearance between it and the frame side rail.
NotesVehicle description: light trucks.system: service brakes; hydro boost system.consequences of defect: increased steering effort and increased stoppingdistances can result in loss of vehicle control and an accident.
STEERING - HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST - HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS
78V141000CHRYSLER CORPORATIONfrom 11/01/1977 to 05/01/1978V (Vehicle)140010/11/1978MFRCHRYSLER GROUP LLC06/14/197810/12/1979
Defect SummaryImproper routing of the hydroboost hydraulic system high pressure hose assembly could allow a tubular section to contact the frame side rail. abrasion from the contact could result, causing a leak in the hose assembly.
Consequence Summary
Corrective SummaryThe dealer will reroute hydroboost high pressure hose assemblies and any damaged hoses will be replaced.
NotesVehicle description: light trucks.system: service brakes; hydrobooster.consequences of defect: leaking could cause loss of power assist for thesteering and braking systems. an increased steering effort and increasedstopping distances would be required and could lead to a vehicle accident,without warning.
STEERING - WHEEL AND HANDLE BAR
78V038000CHRYSLER CORPORATIONfrom 11/01/1977 to 12/01/1977V (Vehicle)900005/01/1978MFRCHRYSLER GROUP LLC02/17/197810/12/1979
Defect SummaryAn intermediate steering shaft containing a mismatched pot coupling assembly may have been installed on the involved vehicles. this coupling may have an oversized serration diameter. an oversized serration could prevent the coupling from adequately tightening onto the gear or shaft splines.
Consequence Summary
Corrective SummaryThe dealer will inspect and, if necessary, install a replacement shaft coupling.
NotesVehicle description: light trucks and utility trucks.system: steering; steering shaft coupling.consequences of defect: coupling slippage could occur which could result inloss of steering control without prior warning and a vehicle accident.note: if slippage occurs, a raspy noise will be apparent in the steeringsystem, accompanied by excessive free play when the steering wheel is turned.
