Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner.

Defect Description

Eldorado National-California, Inc. (Eldorado) is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Axess transit buses, 2008-2014 E-Z Rider II transit buses, and 2008-2012 XHF transit buses, equipped with certain Cummins Westport Model ISL G or ISX12 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.

Defect Consequence

The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe.

Defect Corrective Action

Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. will notify owners, and authorized Cummins service facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall began on April 12, 2014. Owners may also contact Eldorado National-California, Inc. at 1-909-591-9557 or Cummins at 1-800-343-7357.
