Additional information:

Among the 61 NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

PACCAR Incorporated (“PACCAR”) has recalled an estimated 48,896 model year 2017-2019 Kenworth C500, T600, T660, T680, T800, T880 and W900 Trucks, as well as Peterbilt 367, 386, 389, 567, 579 and 587 Trucks, equipped with Cummins ISX15 or X15 diesel engines. In certain driving conditions, such as on a long down-hill grade, the fuel line may burst if the fuel pump cooling circuit screen becomes restricted.

According to the NHTSA, if the fuel line bursts, fuel may leak onto the road resulting in a roadway hazard for other motorists. The engine may also stall without warning, resulting in the vehicle’s inability to restart, increasing the risk of a crash.

Cummins will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the suspect fuel pump cooling circuit screen, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact PACCAR customer service at 1-940-591-4220. PACCAR’s number for this recall is 18E081.
