    Hey guys, Back in June I purchased a 2005 3500 Sprinter with 190k miles and I have had to take in to the shop 2 times since then for repairs to the engine.

    Punked! (What would you do?)

    Hi Folks, I just bought a converted 2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 from a guy in Jersey. A couple hundred miles into owning it, I started overheating. Pulled over immediately and saw that one of the coolant hoses had blown. I reattached it, refilled the coolant, and continued. I continued to lose...

    OM647 swap into different vehicle.

    This is a rough idea at this point. Always thought of engine swapping something and these engines have really grown on me, and also it would be different then what most people would do. What I'm asking is I have pretty much a whole sprinter, runs and drives perfectly fine. Im wanting to swap the...

    Engine Replacement

    Hello All, I own a 2004 Dodge Sprinter 2500 with 245,000 miles that needs a new engine. According to my mechanic a connecting rod broke while he was test driving it attempting to diagnose my LHM issue. He quoted me 12,000 to get it replaced with a used motor and that is well above my budget. I...
