Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) is hoping to receive U.S. government approval as soon as March for emissions fixes to 104,000 diesel cars that pollute far beyond legal limits.

The development, would involve a new software calibration, could move Fiat closer to settling widespread litigation and avoid costly buybacks of the affected vehicles.
