There have been several recalls issued recently from trucking equipment manufacturers.
Navistar has issued a recall on certain International trucks due to the possibility of the Engine Control Module short circuiting, causing the engine to stall without warning.
Approximately 74 year-model 2016 trucks, manufactured in 2015, have been recalled:
- International ProStar trucks manufactured between Aug. 5 and Aug. 14
- DuraStar trucks manufactured between Aug. 7 and Aug. 13
- PayStar trucks manufactured between Aug. 11 and Aug. 14
- LoneStar trucks manufactured between Aug. 10 and Aug. 14
Navistar will notify owners, and Cummins dealers will replace the ECM free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 31.
Cummins is recalling certain Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engines sold exclusively for use in Navistar and Mack trucks.
The affected engines were manufactured between Sept. 13, 2007, and Sept. 23, 2015. Cummins said the engines have a turbocharger oil supply line that may contact or interfere with the turbocharger inlet elbow, clean air intake clamp or the air fuel control tube, and result in an oil leak. If the turbocharger oil supply line leaks around the exhaust manifold, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Approximately 3,020 engines are affected by this recall. Cummins will notify owners, and dealers will inspect trucks for damage to the oil lines and replace it for free if necessary. The recall is expected to begin Nov. 20.
