24,000 International LT, ProStar tractors recalled

Updated Apr 7, 2019

Navistar is recalling more than 24,000 International tractors for an exhaust pipe problem.

An issue that could cause exhaust pipes to detach from certain trucks has prompted Navistar to issue the recall, according to  the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Navistar’s recall affects about 24,173 model year 2016-2020 International LT and model year 2017-2018 International ProStar 73-inch sleeper cab models equipped with exhaust systems with horizontal aftertreatment devices and horizontal tailpipe mounted on the right side (feature codes 07BKP or 07BKR).

In the affected trucks, the rear exhaust hanger bracket may crack, causing the forward hanger bracket to also crack. If both brackets crack, the exhaust pipe could detach from the trucks.

Navistar will notify owners of affected trucks, and dealers will replace the rear exhaust hanger bracket, any front hanger bracket found damaged and any damaged exhaust pipes for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 19501. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-122.
