SUMMARY: New Flyer Industries Canada ULC (New Flyer) is recalling certain model year 2009 C35LF and L40LFR, model year 2009-2012 C35LFR, model year 2008-2013 C40LF and C40LFR, model year 2013 XN35, model year 2011-2013 XN40 and model year 2012-2013 XN60 transit buses equipped with certain Cummins Westport Model ISL G engines. In the affected vehicles, condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
CONSEQUENCE: The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe.
REMEDY: New Flyer will notify owners, and authorized Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by mid-April 2014. Customers may contact New Flyer at 1-204-934-4876 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. New Flyer's number associated with this recall is R14-006.
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.
