Industry insiders report that Cummins will recall nearly 5,500 engines

Cummins is recalling nearly 5,500 ISX12 and ISX15 heavy-duty diesel engines manufactured between March 7, 2016, and April 12, 2016, because of a faulty engine control module.

The website says it is citing a recall notice reporting that the module may short out and blow a fuse, possibly causing the engine to stall without warning. The website is reporting that Cummins is blaming the problem on water that got into the modules during the wash process after assembly.

The report states that the recall is expected to begin July 7th. It also says that Cummins will notify owners and dealers and replace the engine control module for free.
