    Does someone know the hose clamp sizes for all the critical areas in the HC? I am planning on investing in marine quality clamps, but do not know the sizes.

    Thank you,

    VP

    I would recommend the Mopar clamp referenced in the service bulletin.. This is supposed to be a temporary, not a permanent fix, until the cause is determined. The recommended part is the authorized part and is designed to prevent overtorquing, breaking something else, or making the problem worse. You come up with your own clamp and your own solution, and Mopar may wash their hands of a warranty repair if things go further south. The right clamp is under $4 at your Mopar dealer. You may need to order it from the dealer or they are available online.

    You can go with a platinum plated one off a Bugatti Veyron, but the part Mopar recommends for the fix is the smartest option.

    Question...if we add the clamp ourselves, and then the car has an issue with Dodge say we did it wrong and not cover anything?

    I just drove 1400 miles from pickup at dealer to home.
    Great ride...
    My hose looks like it should be, with the clamp in place...no smell...
    Should I be worried ...
