Recall Summary: New Flyer Industries Ltd. (New Flyer) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 C35LFR, 2008-2013 C40LF, 2008-2013 C40LFR, 2009 L40LFR, 2009 C35LF, 2013-2014 XN35, 2011-2014 XN40, and 2012-2014 XN60 buses, equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If the engine oil comes into contact with hot surfaces, it can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners on behalf of New Flyer, and Cummins service centers will administer the repairs which include securing the ends of the 90-degree elbow and reprogramming the electronic control module (ECM) with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at (204) 224-6706. New Flyer's number for this recall is R15-007.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2014-03-05 (Published by NHTSA on 2014-03-22)
Recall Summary: New Flyer Industries Canada ULC (New Flyer) is recalling certain model year 2009 C35LF and L40LFR, model year 2009-2012 C35LFR, model year 2008-2013 C40LF and C40LFR, model year 2013 XN35, model year 2011-2013 XN40 and model year 2012-2013 XN60 transit buses equipped with certain Cummins Westport Model ISL G engines. In the affected vehicles, condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
Hazard: 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.
Remedy: New Flyer will notify owners, and authorized Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by mid-April 2014. Customers may contact New Flyer at 1-204-934-4876 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. New Flyer's number associated with this recall is R14-006.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
