Here is the long awaited ala carte service menu from Rocklin. I was told this covers all makes/models and years of Sprinters. I need a 40k so I look at the 20k - I think that is how it works. I am trying to clarify exactly what the injector service, differential service and transmission service consists of and will post it when I find out.

Regards,

Keith

I found out the fuel injection service s a chemical the run through the air take and injectors.

The rear end service is emptying and refilling the differential.

The transmission service is pulling the pan, replacing the filter, gasket and fluid. I am not sure why that did not have a break down on parts.

Keith

The top of the document says, "VHM - Sprinter 06 Older"

Do they have NAFTA NCV3 service offerings?


Regarding, "INSTALL ENGINE OIL TREATMENT"
Since MB goes out of their way to print the phrase, "Do not use engine oil additives," I'd be curious to know what Rocklin's service techs know that the rest of us - apparently - aren't suppose to know.

Regarding the additives: What they know is: How to make extra money on service. I have seen all kinds of dealers add aftermarket crap that the owners manual says not to add. It probably won't do any damage, but I can't imagine that it helps either.

I was told the document applies to all Sprinters, all years, all makes, all models.

And Mercedes clearly states adding aftermarket fluids as to a consolation with your local oil and fuel companies.
Like B10 which is tolerable on all Mercedes units from 1998.or adding an upper cylinder lubricant
It's all on the MB guidelines for Oils and fuels.
Warranty is not voided in Australia.even if MB tires to wiggle out of it.

$469 Transmission refill at 20,000 miles?!?!?
The 2008 Owners manual says it's a 60,000 mile interval.

..the 2005 T1N's interval is "once only at 80,000.", with "check rear differential" every 6th 30,000 mile Maintenence session (i.e. 180,000 miles)

p.s. currently on the market for a replacement for our 2nd car... a 1988 Nissan Stanza Wagon
(our mechanic says he has enough boats, so we might's well not keep repairing it)

This is what they are recommending for RV conversions due to the weight they are carrying. Plus many conversions are not driven a huge number of miles per year. On my way home from Rocklin I ran into another Airstream conversion from 2004. He only had 40,000 miles on it. If he hadn't changed his driveline fluids it would be at least seven years with the original. Others are running a 100k in a year or two.
