Fiat has recalled the 2.3-litre diesel Ducato van over concerns the intercooler sleeve could come loose from the throttle body.

The manufacturer says if the condition occurs, the engine warning light will illuminate and drivers will experience a loss of power.

Should the vehicle unexpectedly lose power when in use, it could increase the risk of an accident.

Owners of the recalled Ducato vehicles will be contacted by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia, and will be advised to schedule a service booking with their local Fiat Professional dealer.

The company says the dealer will replace the existing metal band with a new one that "has features to ensure" the sleeve stays between the intercooler and throttle body.
