Navistar is recalling some 10,038 model year 2019-2021 International LT and RH trucks. The company says the wrist pin may crack and cause connecting rod failure, which could cause the engines to stall, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.
Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will install a detection system software to warn the driver prior to engine connecting rod failure. Additionally, engines with a defective connecting rod will be repaired, free of charge. Vehicles previously repaired under Recall 20V-255, which received only a software update, will need to return to the dealer for the new remedy.
Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 20505. NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-281.
