Default BEWARE Mfg. Flaw on Hemi Engines

Tothose that have the 5.7 Hemi engine you may want to check this out on your truck also.

While cleaning my truck this past weekend i did an engine shampoo and noticed that the upper rad hose is wearing done the plastic fan shroud and leaving a nice size wear mark in it after looking at that i looked at the bottom of my rad hose and sure enough its worn down a fair bit also.

Know imagine being on the Highway or in the boonies and it blows because of a stupid design.

Check yours also and BEWARE i notified my dealer and my service advisor said to bring it in they will change the Hose under my extended warranty and put a cover around that area to protect the new one.

I saw your post earlier today and looked at mine, and it is exactly as you describe. I have a 3-4" strip about 1/2" wide where the rad hose rest on top of the plastic fan shroud. I am going to put it on my list of things to get looked at.

I took mine to the dealer the other day and had service manager look at the problem turns out he has seen it alot on the rams and the fix for it is to loosen the clamp on the thermostat housing and turn the hose inward a little bit which will lift the hose away from the shroud i did it myself on the weekend. But Dodge will not replace the shroud underwarranty.
