    Cleaning EGR to hopefully fix LHM - anything else to inspect?

    Hey Folks- I'm the second owner of a well used 2007 Freightliner Sprinter, 3.0 V6 OM642 ~184k miles. Since getting the van I've replaced the rear end with a remanufactured unit, replaced the turbo (horrible shaft play), replaced the intake manifolds (swirl valve problems), glow plugs...

    EGR Valve Open Circuit, and Other Electrical Gremlins

    Hi All, I recently purchased a 2003 T1N OM612 Dodge Sprinter and am in need of some advice sorting out some electrical problems I have had. The van has a loss of power issue, that I suspect is a result of an EGR Valve Open Circuit code (P1043-8, EGR/ARF valve - Cable has Open circuit.) that I...

    Cleaned my sticky EGR valve and now it doesn't work at all.

    My 2004 2500 only had issues going up some steeper hills in the summer heat, and not even all hills at that point. I decided to see if my EGR was beginning to gunk up. I removed it, saw that it was slightly sticky, but mostly clean. After I cleaned it, the fins snapped back successfully like...

    2013 Sprinter Ambulance / Seeking Buyers Advice

    HI - First timer here. After years of eying craigslist for vans to convert into a camper, I happen to drive by a local parts yard / used car lot and saw a bunch of Sprinter ambulances in the yard. They apparently were purchased from an ambulance company that was retiring them. The one I'm...

    Fuel Issues in South America

    My girlfriend and I are planning a road trip from Canada down to Chile. We were planning to buy a converted Sprinter for the journey. I have been reading how the modern (post-2007) Sprinters require ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel - which will be difficult or impossible to obtain in a few...

    Zany numbers for two exhaust sensors

    I have an iCarSoft MBII. When I look at the readings for the Pre Catalytic Converter Temperature Sensor under Engine Sensors, I see a reading of 542.84 oF when the engine is cold and not running. The reading for the Temp sensor downstream of the exhaust gas recirculation cooler is *exactly* the...

    Stuck in Limp Home Mode (LHM) - multiple DTCs

    This started a week ago on my way up to Oregon to see the total eclipse. The too long/didn't read version is this: my tailpipe emitted some black smoke, and I lost almost all my power (no turbo) while trying to get over the Sierras (I-80/Donner Summit). I made it back home in limp home mode. Now...

    So I'm caught in the CA smog debacle with my 06 3500 where EGR monitor refuses to reset. I've been through Dodge Corp (Referred me to their test house) and Mercedes Corp (less than helpful on all fronts). I ran across this today which somewhat confirms my suspicions that due to starting...
