    I notified my dealer two weeks ago that there was a Recall on the Fuel Rail. I called today and the parts department said the parts were back ordered?? It figures! I hope I don't have to wait months for Dodge to get their act together!

    FreightTrain,

    Here in Florida it gets hotter than hell during the summer! That Fuel Rail issue will definitely be on my mind when I drive my Hellcat.

    I have put a fire extinguisher in my trunk since I heard about this recall. Hey! You never know! Better safe than sorry!

    Just got mine done yesterday and they were able to order another fuel rail after they installed mine. Seems they are only allowed one for stock. Regardless they have another one inbound.

    Then we would have other issues. The inlet valves don't get washed and that causes carbon build up on the intake valves.

    My dealer got the fuel rail in and I am scheduled to have it done this Saturday. I hope it goes well and nothing gets scratched or broken.

    just contacted SRT, they still have no idea when my service dealer will get the rail to fix my car.. its been on order for over a month now.. I even offered to buy the part myself off of Eway (yes they are available for sale on there) VERY FRUSTRATING!

    If you complain enough they will probably agree to send you a check for reimbursement

    Attached pic with part # any dealer could tell you srock avaliable across U.S. Maybe call Whithead ask what they see they're super nice. Good luck.
