I recently noticed the same issue when replacing a water pump. Several timing cover screws were on the verge of falling out.

You might have better luck if you used the correct and complete part number: 4874371AC.

I am finding that part in stock at a number of online Mopar dealers. It never came up as NLA.

That's half the test.



That's certainly true. But it's how fast the fan stops that matters. With a cold engine, the fan should slowly freewheel to a stop. With a hot engine, the fan should...

Fact is, a leaking FPR relief valve will produce the exact same results as a leaking fuel pump check valve. And, if you replace the entire assembly, you really don't know which caused the problem.
