Another recall related to the Cummins and Cummins-Westport natural gas engine recalls was posted this week, as Autocar is recalling 4,100 trucks equipped with the Cummins-Westport ISL G and the Cummins ISX12 G.

Cummins has also submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration a list of truck makers that have been affected by the recall, and it includes all major North American truck makers. Paccar and Daimler have already issued recalls for their brands — Peterbilt and Kenworth and Freightliner, Sterling and Thomas Built, respectively.

More details on recalls from Navistar-International, Volvo and Mack will be posted when notices are filed and published.

The Autocar recall affects year model 2008-2014 models ACX, WX and WXLL built between July 30, 2007, and Feb. 10, 2014, and equipped with the two engines are being recalled due to an potentially malfunctioning intake manifold pressure sensor.

    “….cause exhaust temperatures to elevate and cause flames to shoot from exhaust stacks…”

    Are you kidding me? Do you know how many drivers pay to have propane flame spit kits installed on their pipes? And Cummins is doing it for FREE!?

    All kidding aside, love Cummins and this is hardly surprising considering how new this technology is on big truck scales.
