CUMMINS WESTPORT ANNOUNCES ENGINE RECALL TO FIX FUEL SENSORS
Cummins and Cummins Westport have issued a recall through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTA) because extreme cold weather could cause a sensor to fail that could result in an exhaust fire. Condensation in the tubes that distributes air coming into the engine may freeze during extremely cold weather. That ice could interfere with the proper operation of the pressure sensor, potentially increasing exhaust temperatures or causing flames from the exhaust pipe. No injuries have been reported, but Cummins Westport has received two reports of flames coming from vehicle exhaust pipes. The recall affects 25,013 engines comprised of the Model ISL G engines made from Sept. 12, 2007 through Feb. 2, 2014 and the Model ISX 12G engines made from Feb. 19, 2013 through Feb. 2, 2014. For more information, owners may call a Cummins support line at 800.343.7357.
