Summary:
      Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Lowfloor vehicles manufactured August 26, 2010, to April 30, 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 engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy:
      Gillig will notify owners, and dealers will secure the ends of the 90-degree elbow. In addition, the electronic control module "ECM" will be reprogrammed 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 2, 2015. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-800-735-1500.
