    No start after Injector Copper washer change.

    I have changed the copper washer on the number two cylinder of my T1n. I bought the van in November with the seller telling me it is a five minute job to change and a common maintenance item. I only later heard of "The Black Death". After changing that cylinder (six hours of cleaning, removing...

    Hard to say how many hours I've spent reading up on this issue up to this point. Thanks to all of the great information in this forum. My question is (hopefully) simple: How much should I expect to be charged for a new key and/or ignition switch? I'm not having the ignition Lock Out problem...

    Replaced Head Gasket - No Start

    I just replaced my head gasket (all new injectors) and can't get the truck started. It's a 2002 Freightliner (OM612, I believe). It's not building any fuel rail pressure. The scanner showed no PSI on the rail. Doing the injector leak test doesn't produce any fuel in the hoses on top of the...

    Puzzling cold start issues, am I on the right track here?

    My sprinter does not like cold starts at all. Like anything below about 20-25 degree F it definitely wont start. Anyway I've started to try and figure out why.
