Daimler Recalls Trucks With Caterpillar C15 Engines

October 07, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Daimler Trucks North America is recalling more than 25,300 MY 2004-2010 trucks equipped with Caterpillar C15 engines because of the risk of an oil leak. 

The variable valve actuation oil line may rub against the P-clips retaining the oil line, leading to an oil leak, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported. 

The trucks affected by the recall are the Freightliner Argosy, Freightliner Century Class, Freightliner Columbia, Freightliner Coronado, Freightliner FLD, Sterling A-Line, Sterling L-Line, Western Star 4900 and Western Star 6900. 

Daimler Trucks is working with Caterpillar to remedy the problem. Caterpillar will inspect and repair the necessary components free of charge. Owners can reach Caterpillar at (800) 447-4986. Daimler Trucks can be reached at (800) 547-0712.
