The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced two recalls affecting certain International trucks and some Trail King gooseneck trailers.
The recall from Navistar on International trucks affects approximately 224 trucks with Cummins ISX15 Performance Series engines – the same recall that was issued for more than 1,700 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks and approximately 74 Freightliner and Western Star trucks. In these engines, the fuel pump’s drive gear could slip on its drive shaft, resulting in a loss of function, causing the engine to stall.
International’s recall affects model year 2018 International HX and LT trucks manufactured between late November 2016 and early April 2017.
Cummins began notifying owners of the affected engines on Aug. 11 and will replace the fuel pumps for free. NHTSA’s recall number is 17V-406.
The other recall announced by NHTSA affects approximately 743 model year 2012-2014 Trail King gooseneck trailers manufactured between June 17, 2011, and Jan. 31, 2014. The recall states in certain TK70HDG, TK80HDG, TK102HDG, TK110HDG and TK110HED trailers, the pivot plate could crack, causing the trailer deck to disconnect from the gooseneck.
Trail King began notifying owners on Aug. 21, and dealers will inspect the plates for cracks, repair any that are found, and add reinforcements to the pivot plates for free. NHTSA’s recall number is 17V-494.
