Paccar recently announced it is recalling more than 1,300 2021-’24 model year Peterbilt 579 and 567 trucks.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Paccar is recalling about 1,315 of the trucks because the U-bolts that attach the air tank to the chassis may contact the fuel tank and could, over time, wear a hole in the tank. A punctured fuel tank can leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire.
Dealers will inspect and trim the U-bolts, and replace the fuel tank as necessary, free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Nov. 24.
Owners can contact Peterbilt's customer service at 940-591-4220 with recall number 23PBH. NHTSA’s recall number is 23V-653.
