Navistar International Corp. has suspended production of diesel engines at its plant on Indianapolis’ eastside and at another plant in Alabama.

The decision stems from a lawsuit filed by Ford Motor Co. claiming Illinois-based Navistar isn’t adequately sharing warranty costs for the engines, which are used in its lucrative Super Duty F-Series pickup trucks. Seven-hundred workers at the Indianapolis plant churn out 400 engines a day.

Navistar said last month the claims are without merit.
