A new Freightliner recall is underway


More than 3,000 Freightliners are being recalled over the potential for engine fires.

Fuel may leak from the engine's high-pressure fuel rail feed lines in Freightliner trucks equipped with a DD15TC engine model years 2010-2020 sold between January 1, 2010, and March 8, 2020.

"Vehicles in this recall previously recalled under PRA2019/17902 (campaign RC3149-D19R5A) or PRA2019/17954 (campaign RC3151-D19R5B) will still require their vehicle to be repaired under this recall," the recall notice for 3,053 affected vehicles reads.

Owners are asked to contact any authorised Freightliner/Detroit Diesel dealership who will make a booking time as soon as possible to replace the high pressure fuel-rail feed lines and supporting hardware with severe-duty high-pressure fuel-line kit, free of charge.

"A list of Authorised Freightliner/Detroit Diesel Dealerships will be included with the Customer Owner Letter being posted to registered vehicle owners shortly and a Dealership list is attached with this notice," it reads.

"If you have previously had your vehicle completed under RC3149-D9R5A or RC3151-D19R5B your vehicle will still need to be completed under this new safety recall."
