  • 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.
