...or put it in the "location" field in your profile (like Sikwan's "San Jose, CA" and my "Seattle")
If you're in Paris, please clarify with "France" or "Texas"

thanks

Thumbs up Re: Please include Geographic Location in Title

Thanks Sikwan,

This has been an irritation to me since day one. It's a common occurrence on the VW forums too. I usually look at the person's profile to try to determine their location but most of the time the bloke hasn't listed it there either. That's when I really blow a fuse. So much wasted time and energy over the last year and can you imagine when the item listed is actually something I want/need?!

Again, thanks!

This should be in the forum software...no location, no joiny What's the big freakin secret?...Trust me, you're not that special, ...no one's going to come and find you

It's pertinent info throughout the forum, not just in the for sale section.

Default Re: Please include Geographic Location in Title & SELLER REMINDER LIST

hey everyone,
I'm new to this forum and I posted a listing for my ram promaster, it looks like the thread was removed, can someone explain why? Is this forum exclusive to 'mercedes sprinters'? Technically my promaster has a mercedes engine so I'm a little confused as to why the post would be removed. thanks in advance for the feedback!

Well it DOES say Sprinter Vans Only in bold font.

And, others are simply imitations.

I delete imitator adverts on Craigslist when I see them.

The listing...

https://sprinter-source.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=61087

Are you sure the ecodiesel is from Mercedes?

From an early ProMaster review:
Quote:
The Pentastar engines were created by Chrysler engineers for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram; a Ferrari-re-engineered version is built for Maserati.

The Pentastar 3.6 liter V6 engine pumps out 305 horsepower in the Dodge Challenger and the 2013 Ram. It matches prior-generation Hemi V8 0-60 times (6.6 seconds). With the nine-speed AWD setup in the Chrysler 200, it is good for 0-60 in 6.4 seconds. The more fuel-efficient, but less powerful, 3.2 liter V6 is used in the Jeep Compass.

A 3-liter twin-turbo version is on the way (it will probably be less powerful than the 404 horsepower version used by Maserati). Direct injection is coming with the “PUG” Pentastar upgrade, around calendar-year 2015-16. It might be waiting for low-sulfur gasoline.

The Pentastar enabled major V6 engine components to be cut from 189 parts to just 32. Exhaust manifolds are cast directly into the cylinder head (32 different exhaust manifolds had been used). Intake assemblies, which together accounted for 32 different part numbers, have been slashed to two upper and two lower assemblies. Camshaft variations have dropped from 14 to four; fuel rail assemblies dropped from 14 to two. (These figures are from before the 2013 Ram and the 3.2.) Fully dressed, the 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 is 94 pounds lighter than the 3.7-liter engine (Grand Cherokee) and 42 pounds lighter than the 3.5-liter (Chrysler 300).
Which i found from this Allpar page: https://www.allpar.com/trucks/ram/ProMaster.html

They may have been a 3.0 diesel and 3.6 gasser, but they're not Mercedes engines.
