Navistar recently announced two recalls of International trucks, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.
The largest of the recalls includes about 12,539 International medium- and severe-duty trucks. Affected models include:
- 2018-2019 International DuraStar
- 2019-2020 International HV
- 2019-2020 International MV
- 2018-2020 International WorkStar
The affected trucks are equipped with feature cords 12VXT and 12VXU. With the parking brake applied and the automatic transmission in the “Drive” or “Reverse” position, when the stationary PTO switch is engaged by the driver, the affected trucks’ engine RPM could ramp up and may overcome the parking brake’s ability to hold the vehicle, Navistar says.
Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will update the Engine Control Module to enable the PTO neutral interlock for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 19518. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-841.
Navistar is also recalling three model year 2020 International HV 6×4 trucks. The company says these trucks were built with a non-Quick Release Modulator Valve instead of a Quick Release Modulator Valve, which could affect the brake release time.
Navistar will notify affected owners, and dealers will replace the NQRMV with a QRMV for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 19519. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-838.
