Details:The Dodge Ram Cummins diesel settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, titled Pardue v. Cummins Diesel Sales Corp., et al, that alleges pattern 53 blocks, originally installed in certain 1998-2001 model year Chrysler Dodge Ram model 2500 or 3500 trucks as a component of certain Cummins ISB 5.9 liter diesel engines, crack on the passenger side of the block, causing coolant to leak. No injuries have been reported as a result of these alleged defects.

The maker of these diesel engine blocks, Cummins, Inc., denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Cummins diesel engine block class action settlement include anyone who purchased or leased in the United States a 1998-2001 model year Chrysler Dodge Ram truck, model 2500 or 3500, originally equipped with a Cummins ISB 5.9 liter diesel engine built using a pattern 53 block.

As a Class Member, you’re entitled to receive a reimbursement of up to, but not exceeding, $500 of money you paid to repair or replace a covered engine or engine block. To qualify, the crack in the block’s passenger side must have first happened:

• After the original engine warranty expired (in other words, (1) after the truck in which the engine was originally installed had been operated for 100,000 original miles, or (2) five years after the date the truck was originally purchased, whichever happened first); AND

• Before the covered truck had been operated for 250,000 original miles.

If you experienced this a crack in the passenger side of a covered engine block after October 28, 2011, you must submit a Claim Form by the deadline of January 26, 2013 to receive compensation from the class action lawsuit settlement.
