Or stop by Upscale Auto on:

19460 SW 89th Ave.
Tualatin, OR 97062
503-692-0846 Fax 503-691-2763

This isn't very far off I-5, just south of Portland.
i knew there was a dad map buy couldnt find it! also thanks for the recommendation on upscale. Im assuming they are the ones listed as
Factory Master Certified Sprinter Shop on the dad list?

I remember having a glow plug fault on #2 (will have to check paperwork) Seems like if it sits and the temp is under 20 it will barely start, if its just over 20 it will fire up with a few extra cranks. The other day i had to try it about 8 times to get it started and barely kept going before it smoothed out. The glow plug light comes on/ cycles off then when i start the van it comes back on for 20-30 seconds then goes out. Does that every time i start the van, hot or cold.
