Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2004: How high should the temp gauge go?
Normally it should be about halfway on the scale, but it could go higher than that and not be a problem as long as it doesn’t get close to the top mark.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter reduce old level error
If it happened shortly after a service it's probably been over-filled when the oil was changed. Draining a small amount of oil out of the engine should fix it. If that's not the cause it could be a faulty sensor, and it might need replacing. If it's happening regularly, and you know the oil fill was correct it could be diesel fuel getting into the oil through a faulty injector.
Best platform for a motorhome?
I've driven both and much prefer the Sprinter. The "manumatic" in the Fiat is not good and I prefer the way the Benz sits on the road, how it performs over bumps and its resistance to crosswinds.
Sprinter van gearbox problems
The Sprintshift gearbox is an automated shift manual unit, so I would have the ECU controlling the gearbox checked to find out why it's going into auto mode all the time. I would also seek some form of guarantee from the dealer covering the injectors, and perhaps find out where they're coming from.
