Diamler Trucks has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2008 through 2015 Sterling LT8500 vehicles manufactured from February 19, 2008 through February 11, 2014 and equipped with Cummins Westport Model ISL G and Cummins Westport Model ISX12 G engines. They stated that condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
The sensor malfunction could inducer elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe. Cummins and Cummins Westport will notify owners, and authorized Cummins service facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. Owners may contact Cummins at 1-800-385-4357.
