Default Re: Low DEF False Alarm & Another Really Bad Mercedes Dealer

VW,,," All because of a unknown breakdown somewhere in their emissions compliance system. Hmmm"

The VW folks did not have breakdowns, their only fault was dissing the Air Police , and setting up the computer to know when it was being tested , and act with clean power and better fuel use the rest of the time.

The BoroRats do not like being fooled , so it coat VW a billion for delivering superior vehicles.

The MB problem is an under engineered , over thought complex patch for the Air Police.

Starting over and obtaining some diesel experts from VW would be better a better approach for us Sprinter owners.

Deleting the 10 start till dead on DEF equipment failure would be a good quick PR stroke , to show they care about stranding Sprinters..

this is a silly example of anti-beaureaucratic nonsense (there are plenty of reasons to object to beaureaucracy, to be sure). The US government set standards for diesel emissions, rightly or wrongly believing them to be attainable. VW refused to obey the new emissions requirements, and instead opted to cheat by faking the testing process. There was nothing "superior" about the VW vehicles, certainly not if you accept the emissions standards as legitimate.

there are plenty of reasons to be pissed at MB too, but importing lying liars from VW would make things worse, not better.

I know you said Dennis but allow me. I have been studying Sprinter emission operating principles for two-years and, other than using fresh, clean DEF, have read zero MB maintenance publications related to exhaust after treatment system.

From my studies, learning the Sprinter's operational "Sweet Spot" as described by others is the only way to ensure long emission component service life. Dennis had described it as ran the vehicle like you stoled it.
