International issues recall of certain trucks

International Truck and Engine Corp has recalled 2,021 International 7500 medium/heavy-duty trucks, model years 2001-04, manufactured September 2001-March 2004.

On certain trucks equipped with DT466- or DT530 1308-style engines and either 4×4 or 6×6 capability, the universal joint between the front drive shaft and drive axle could come in contact with the engine oil filter. This could cause complete engine oil loss that could result in the engine shutting down, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will install a shorter oil filter and adapter. Owners may phone International at 800-448-7825.
