View Full Version : 09 sprinter no power

06-30-2016, 12:15 AM
Hello everyone I'm new to the sprinter lifestyle as i just picked up an 09 sprinter. Formally an ambulance and i am converting it to a work van. Okay so i test drove the van and everything was fine now i pick it up and it has no power. It can barley go up hills and tops out at about 55mph. any ideas on what this could be? Check engine light is on but i haven't scanned yet. Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Charge air leak or egr issue. Suggest a scan gauge or ultra gauge to measure boot pressure. A good in board tool to have to see a variety of things.

Just scaned with scangauge and got code P2015 any idea what that could be

Scangauge is good to monitor the engine, not the best code reader. It can give false codes and more generic codes versus a real scan tool that can talk Sprinter. Not all scan tools talk Sprinter.

P2015 is swirl valve problem. Not a good code to have if there is such a thing. You can use the search feature and read multiple posts on swirl valves and intake manifolds. The fix is new intake manifolds and that is a bout a 10-12 hour job so it can cost $$$$.


There are one or two posts claiming cleaning or flushing or repairing the swirl valve system ?? proceed with caution.
