Spartan Issuing Fire Truck Recall

May 05, 2010

WASHINGTON - Because of an engine problem, Spartan Chassis Inc. is recalling 167 MY 2007-2009 Gladiator Class 8 fire trucks equipped with Detroit Diesel Series 60 engines. 

The engine in the fire apparatus vehicle may shut down unexpectedly when a diesel particulate filter's over-temperature condition is detected, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Spartan will notify truck owners of the recall, and Detroit Diesel will repair the vehicles free of charge by reprogramming the engine control logic to illuminate a malfunction indicator light without triggering engine shutdown.

Spartan Chassis can be reached at (800) 543-4277.
