Eldorado National-California, Inc. "Eldorado" is recalling certain model year 2007-2015 Axess, E-Z Rider II, and XHF vehicles manufactured July 1, 2007, to May 2, 2015, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. 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.
If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Cummins has notified owners on behalf of Eldorado, 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 Eldorado customer service at 1-909-591-9557 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-343-7357.
