Just a comment!
If you look after the bloody thing it will go half a million miles or more on MB spec oils.

Just out of interest!!! Why did you have to "break in" or "run in", "puesto en marcha" a major component anyway?

All the smooth running best to you all , especially when your OM642 sounds like a Welsh Tenor Choir at the Eisteddfod boyos .

AND
If it sounds like a Russian Baritone military ensemble it ain't going to go the distance!
I can almost "sense" it!

New Sprinter does have break in oil in it !
I was sceptical , until I saw data on this forum . It was posted only once and I can't find it . Jdcaples posted it, I think.

The surfaces finishes the tolerances in these engines are not comparable to designs from 30+ years ago. There is minimal mating required, and many surfaces have nearly mirror finishes, and tight tolerances which do not require wear to mate. Many have anti friction coatings.

Any company that makes millions of engines has a decent idea of whats required.

My 2008 will throw overfill error if filled to capacity on dip stick and per specs. We fill it to 3/8 below. This one will go thousands - 3k? before needing oil.

Don't the NCV3s have a hot fill dipstick, so you need to check it when its hot? If filled to the full mark when cold, it will be 1/2 a quart high?

[COLOR="red"] so officially there is NO DIPSTICK on the 2019 sprinter. At least that's what the guy from Mercedes where I bought mine from said. I asked him for the official post number so I could order it, because on the net I saw different part numbers being thrown around, and he said there isn't one. I insisted there is a place for it so there just be a part that goes in there and he insisted no. In the screenshot of what he said. It's he right or a dumbass? Anyone know?

I am 99% certain there is a dipstick available. Why? fleet operators will want to check oil without finding a key, etc. Plus the sensors do occasionally fail.

As a general rule. If a dealer says something that will reduce the work they need to do, and increase profit? Assume first that is a lie, or just BS.

It may be worth asking Europarts SD if they are interested in locating the correct part, and carrying it. I am sure many owners will want a dipstick in the future.

Basically the time to do an oil change with a dipstickless engine is adding 0,5 hours.
Its a scan tool job and its hurry up and wait for the level/temp to stabilize.
