Engine Fuel Heater May Overheat and Cause Fire

A fire increases the risk of injury. An engine stall can increase the risk of crash.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V217

Manufacturer Navistar, Inc.

Components FUEL SYSTEM, DIESEL

Potential Number of Units Affected 20,142

 

Summary

Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) is recalling certain 2017-2020 IC Bus CESB school buses equipped with Cummins B6.7 diesel engines with fuel module option number FS90301 or FS90453. The electrical wiring within the fuel heater may overheat and may cause plastic in the fuel heater to melt and potentially catch fire. It may also lead to engine stalling.

 

Remedy

Cummins will notify the affected Navistar owners. A temporary field action will involve removing the fuse for the fuel heater and replacing any fuel heater found with signs of damage or fuel leakage with a temporary cavity plug. Customers will be renotified once Cummins determines a final remedy. The recall is expected to begin in April 2019. Owners may contact Cummins customer service at 1-800-286-6467 or Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
