Ice May Form in Intake Manifold

SUMMARY:
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.
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.
