More than 1,700 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks equipped with Cummins ISX15 engines are being recalled by Paccar due to a potential problem with the fuel pumps.
The recall affects approximately 1,737 model year 2017-2018 Peterbilt 367, 389, 567, 579 and 587 trucks manufactured between Dec. 20, 2016, and April 17, 2017, as well as model year 2018 Kenworth C500, T680, T800, T880 and W900 trucks manufactured between Jan. 9, 2017 and May 5, 2017.
The recall states the affected engines could have faulty fuel pumps that can cause the drive gear on the fuel pump to spin loose on the drive shaft, resulting in the loss of the fuel pump’s functionality. This could cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Cummins will notify vehicle owners, and Cummins dealers will replace the fuel pumps for free. A notification schedule has not yet been determined.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall number is 17V-443, and the Paccar recall number is C1909. Truck owners with questions can contact Cummins or Paccar customer service.
