Summary:
      Autocar, LLC "Autocar" is recalling certain model year 2008-2016 Xpeditor vehicles manufactured July 30, 2007, to April 29, 2015. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Consequence:
      If the engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, it can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
      Cummins will notify owners on behalf of Autocar, and Cummins service centers will administer the repairs which include securing the ends of the 90-degree elbow and reprogramming the electronic control module "ECM" with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on June 16, 2015. Owners may contact Autocar customer service at 1-765-489-5499 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. Autocar's number for this recall is ACX-1503.
