The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the alleged flaws are based on Cat engines for trucks and school buses it made between 2006 and 2010. The report says the flaws did not result in any deaths or injuries, but the lawsuits allege the engines were prone to breakdowns, with some catching fire. &nbsp; The Journal says Cat stopped making the truck and bus engines for the U-S market four years ago.
