Navistar Issues Recall of 16,000 International Trucks

Navistar recalls International trucks due to an issue with an air line in the fifth wheel system


Navistar has issued a recall of over 16,107 International trucks due to what they call a "disoriented air lines at the isolation/vent valve on the trucks’ electronic fifth wheel jaw release system." The disorientation is due to an assembly error according to Navistar, and the improper orientation can, in the event of an air leak at the valve, cause the fifth wheel jaw to release the trailer from the tractor.

The recall is for year models 2008 to 2013 of LoneStar, ProStar and TranStar truck lines. Navistar says it is notifying owners and dealers will inspect air line routing. If repair is needed, it will be done free of charge. To see more, click HERE.
