Faulty lines for the engine oil cooler can cause oil to spray onto the windshield or catch fire.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has issued a recall for 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicles powered by the powerful Hellcat supercharged V8.

Some of the vehicles may have been manufactured with faulty lines to the engine oil cooler. A failed hose can result in rapid loss of engine oil.

"If an EOC line fails, oil may spray onto the windshield or contact a hot surface, impairing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash or fire," recall documents warn.

FCA first spotted signs of trouble in May after receiving three warranty part returns in a two-week period, all indicating joint separation of the EOC line. A subsequent investigation found that a certain parts lot was under spec for modulus, elongation, hardness and tensile properties.

The company is said to be unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the defect.
