Gillig LLC is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Lowfloor transit buses manufactured August 26, 2010, through February 14, 2014, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport model ISL G engines. Condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.
Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. will notify owners, and dealers will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2014. Owners may contact Gillig LLC at 1-510-785-1500 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357.
