Default Re: What should the RPM's be at 70 mph

I don't usually drive at 70mph, but at around 65mph I think I'm turning maybe 2300, give or take, on a flat roadway, with no other load enhancing issues. Next time I'm out I'll try to remember to note the RPMs in that speed range.
2017 3.0L V6 w/5 speed auto-transmission. R/E is a 3.923:1, afaik.
Slightly off topic, has anyone used this VIN analyzer?

or this one?

Thanks for those... the first one barfed if i gave it the "European" VIN (WDB903662... style)
... and then didn't respond at all when i tried the US formulation.

The second one (https://www.datamb.com/) did work with my VIN.

What it didn't provide was the "sub assembly" numeric breakdowns, which are handy if you're deep into the what-changed-when part number hunts (such as things that only apply to transmission serial numbers xxx-yyy, for example). The Kiev site provides some of those.

I use this one
https://www.vindecoderz.com/EN/check...9066552s231340
And this one
https://www.datamb.com/vin/v8y0XEGO39aEN5Br6
I'd keep a laminated print out of that to help in the future when looking stuff up, even a bulb!

No problem. Seems there's a lot of them out there, some work, some don't, some want $$$ for full information. I save them as PDF or JPG files and keep at least one on my phone.

That looks normal.... My 08 v6 mwb does the same, if not more. Sits at the point where the engine actually starts to make some power.
It likes high revs, >2500, it really does.

ISS.
What year model is your Sprinter?
T1N (2002-2006) or NCV3 (2007-2018).
Do you have the 5G-Tronic/NAG-1 transmission?
Do you know your rear end ratio and are you using the OEM stock tire size?

Got this van about half a year ago and already did some modifications things ( will post some pics for You little bit later).
The big problem with it, it show some trouble codes and check engine lights is ON. Its all happen a three or so weeks ago and after I clear the codes the light goes off, but as soon as I start driving, after about 20-40 miles ( even on freeway at 75 mph ) check engine lights comes ON again. STORED AND PERMANENT codes: P246B P2458 P2459.
Please help, point me into right direction before I do something stupid and expensive.
P.S. Is this still covered by the warranty? The van is 2012 and 31300ml on it. I am the second owner.

Thank You so much!!!!

Keith.
