Chrysler is recalling about 26,000 cars and pickup trucks because power steering fluid can leak onto a hot engine and cause a fire.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that the recall includes some 2010 models of the Chrysler 300 and Sebring, the Dodge Avenger, Challenger and Journey, and some 2011 Dodge Ram pickups.
NHTSA said Wednesday that a power steering hose assembly can separate at the crimped end and leak fluid onto the engine. Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the hoses for free.
Owners with questions can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Volvo Cars of America is recalling almost 10,000 vehicles to fix front air bag systems that may not deploy in a crash.
Volvo says the recall affects certain S80 sedans and XC70 crossover vehicles from the 2010-2011 model year and model year 2010 V70 wagons.
The automaker says there could be a problem with a wiring connector in the air bag system that might prevent the front air bag from protecting the driver in a crash.
Volvo says dealers will fix the wiring connector free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late October.
Owners may contact Volvo at (800) 458-1552.
