Hino Trucks Problems
  • The 08-10 trucks equipped with a DPF have problems with dirt building around the valve that lead to it being sucked shut. Oil pulls up into the engine and aggravates DPF clogging. The problem can be fixed by modifying the intake throttle valve on all six-cylinder engines.
  • Recalls were made on almost all trucks 08-14 for computer reprogramming that helps control soot, among other issues.
  • 763 trucks recalled due to faulty bearing hubs front axle.
  • 237 trucks recalled due to torque fluctuation of the engine that can cause wear to the automatic transmission output flange.
  • Recall for more than 9,000 trucks because of two issues: a filter element that was unable to withstand frequent changes in the fuel pressure and an instrument panel brace problem that can cause the engine to stop while the vehicle is being operated.
