More than 28,000 International trucks are included in two separate recalls announced recently by Navistar, according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Continental Tire also announced a recall of approximately 2,000 commercial truck tires.

The largest of the two Navistar recalls affects 26,288 trucks equipped with Cummins ISX15 or X15 diesel engines.

In certain driving conditions, such as on a long downhill grade, the fuel line may burst if the fuel pump cooling circuit screen becomes restricted. This is the same issue that prompted Daimler Trucks North America to recall 4,500 trucks.

Affected International trucks include:

  • 2017-2018 International 9900I
  • 2017-2019 International HX
  • 2017-2019 International LoneStar
  • 2018-2019 International LT
  • 2017 International PayStar
  • 2017-2018 International ProStar

Cummins will notify owners of affected trucks. A remedy for the recall is still being developed. Affected truck owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-286-6467. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-588.

Another recall from Navistar affects approximately 2,089 vehicles equipped with long stroke brake chambers and spring actuated parking brakes. The recall affects a number of International buses in addition to several truck models.

In the affected trucks, the spring actuated parking brake may be improperly crimped to the long stroke service brake chamber, causing an air leak and the possible separation of the spring brake chamber from the service brake section.

Affected trucks include:

  • 2019 International DuraStar
  • 2019 International HV
  • 2019 International HX
  • 2019 International LoneStar
  • 2019 International LT
  • 2019 International MV
  • 2019 International RH
  • 2019 International WorkStar

Navistar will begin notifying owners on Nov. 6, and dealers will replace the brake chamber assemblies for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number is 18512. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-597.

Finally, Continental Tire is recalling approximately 1,990 Conti Hybrid HS3 tires, size 11R22.5 LI 146/143, Load Range H with DOT codes A33TKWUY 0818 through A33TKWUY 1318. These tires may have cords visible through the innerliner.
