VA Service Manual Powertrain Section

This may be old news for many. I just discovered some of the value of the VA Powertrain section listed near the top of the PDF left side index. I had skimmed the section before. My initial conclusion was that it was very much DRBIII related. After some recent exploration I've come to realize that there is quite a bit of information which can be used DIY.

Here's some of the Index information.

Section 7 has some step by step.

This is an example of some EGR tests which can be done using simple tools.

There is sensor information including locations. This is an example of some ECM information.

Anyway, the VA Powertrain section is well worth exploring.

The manuals are available in this sticky.

I feel silly for asking, but I've been searching and searching on the Manuals page database, and for the life of me, can't seem to find this "VA Powertrain section" ??

I believe that it is section 7 in all of the T1N OEM manuals.

In the file "2006-VA-SM.pdf", the section 7 is for Cooling, and there actually is no section 10 ...?

I think I just basically have the wrong file I'm looking at, but filtering through what I have, I can't seem to find it.

Luc,

There are a lot of 'broken' files for the T1N manual around on the web.

Go to this thread and follow the link to download a 'good' copy and try again...

Thanks!

But i just double checked, and the file "2006-VA-SM.pdf" is the same that I have, with section 7 being the cooling section and section 10 being absent...

I kind of feel slow in the head right now...:idunno:

OK my apologies,

There is NO section 10 in the T1N Sprinter manual!

It was possibly for a Manual transmission? Which is obviously not available in USA.
