Recalls issued: Is your International or Peterbilt truck on the list?

Two issues have been identified affecting certain International and Peterbilt truck models.

Approximately 1,780 International trucks have been recalled by Navistar due to an issue that could cause a fuel leak, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

Model year 2018-2019 International DuraStar and WorkStar models, 2019-2021 International HV and MV models, as well as 2019-2021 IC Bus RE models are affected by the recall.

Navistar says the sealing washer in the affected trucks may not seat correctly in the pilot bore holes, allowing the high-pressure fuel rail assembly to leak.

Dealers will inspect the rail threads and replace the rail as necessary, for free. Owners may contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825. NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-366.

Also, Paccar is recalling 13 model year Peterbilt 348 and 579 model trucks in which the spring brake chamber may have been assembled with incorrect springs that were out of specification. This issue may cause the pressure plate to shift, potentially causing a loss of air pressure.

Dealers will replace the brake chambers for free. Owners may contact Paccar customer service at 1-940-591-4220 with recall number 21PBE. NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-328.
