Cummins Issues Recall Number C1909
Cummins, Inc, issued this recall for X15 heavy-duty diesel engines used in trucks, fire trucks, and recreational vehicles. The fuel pump in these motors comes equipped with a drive gear that may slip on the driveshaft, resulting in a loss of fuel. Anytime diesel, or another fuel type, is involved, the risk of you sustaining a burn injury also increases. There are a potential 2,807 units affected, which may seem somewhat small in comparison to other recalls, but the consequences can be equally as dangerous.
The company is supposed to issue notices to the manufacturers that used these motors in their cars, as well as, to owners that purchased the vehicles. There has not been a schedule released, as of yet, but consumers should feel free to contact the Cummins' customer service department at 1-800-286-6467 for further information, and the appropriate ways to have the problem corrected. They are supposed to have certified dealers replace the fuel pumps, at no charge to you.
Before heading out on the open road, for a much-needed vacation, check your recreational vehicle’s motor to see if it is affected. No one wants to get stuck, at the campsite, or another destination, with no way home, and the cost of the wrecker bill could be catastrophic. Having stalled out trucks, and other large vehicles, on the roadways is just asking for trouble.
