Paccar recently announced that it is recalling approximately 1,315 model year 2021-24 Peterbilt 579 and 567 trucks.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Paccar is recalling the tracks because the U-bolts that secure the air tank to the chassis can contact the fuel tank and cause a hole in the tank over time.
A punctured fuel tank can cause fuel to leak, increasing the risk of fire.
Dealers will inspect and trim U-bolts and replace the fuel tank if necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be sent on November 24th.
Owners can contact Peterbilt customer service at 940-591-4220 with recall number 23PBH. The NHTSA recall number is 23V-653.
