Two separate recalls from Daimler Trucks North America and Navistar have resulted in more than 7,600 Western Star and International tractors being recalled, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Daimler will begin notifying owners of affected trucks on May 21. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-766. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-191.
Navistar also announced a recall that affects some 527 model year 2018-2019 International LT trucks. In the affected trucks, when the hood is closed, the fender splash panel could rub on the inlet fuel line fitting to the fuel/water separator, causing damage to the fitting and possibly resulting in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition can cause a fire, and fuel leaking onto the roadway can increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA says.
Navistar will begin notifying affected truck owners on May 25. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 18503. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-199.
