Yes... Another name for it is "Visctronic Fan Clutch". It still uses silicone liquid to lock and unlock the clutch, but the difference is in the trigger. Viscous fan clutch has a mechanical trigger/coil, the Visctronic fan clutch is directly controlled by the ECU and it has 2 stages/speeds on Sprinters.
Whoa Sir Lancelot !!All codes where cleared last week at the dealership after we replaced the DPF Sensor.
Hello Dennis,Thoughts ??
Get it checked with a factory style scanner in live data and watch top pipe temps being elevated above about 109 c, & cooling fan inactivity then an abrupt loss of turbo boost to about 25% with maybe an EGR stuck at 19% as de-power protection occurs .
We have picked it up few times over the past two years or so.
It only begs me to question just how many of you have replaced a turbo for no good reason or indeed an EGR valve because of this feature with the electric pulse cooling fan & overheating.
