    Newbie kicking tires of 2008 Sprinter with check engine light

    Greetings. I'm kicking the tires on a 2008 Sprinter 2500 with 140K miles. In its previously life it was as a slow moving shuttle for a resort (which may account for the problems below), but the current owner wanted to use it as a delivery vehicle for his business. He's opted to not use it for...

    Problem with 2014 2.1 Sprinter DEF Tank

    Hi, DEF tank on my 2014 2.1 4 cylinder went bad and I got countdowns and things. I have Xentry with SD Connect 4 and I was trying to do regen, but every time I start doing that process it starts from 159%, I assume that it doesn't do that, due to faulty DEF Tank, which has a problem with a...

    DPF question - regen cycles

    My previous vehicle was a RAM Ecodiesel. If I drove it around town and not the freeways, I'd get a DPF at 80% message, and it'd tell me to drive at highway speeds to remedy. While I drove, I saw the amount go down to less than 20% and all was well. A few days ago I brought my 2017 Sprinter...

    DPF sensor fix

    Hi I have read elsewhere about removing a (UK) DPF, connecting the sensor pipes together then using a resistor to tell the sensor that there is still a DPF present. Does anyone have any information about this ? (and the value of the resistor needed) Thanks Jules
