An overview that I found easy to use. The list isn't complete for all MB spec oils applicable to a specific Sprinter engine, but what is listed is good to use.

Recommended Mercedes Sprinter Oil Specs
The recommended Sprinter oil, specifications, quality standards, and oil viscosity weight are specified in your owner's manual. These specifications can typically be referenced in the owners manual index under engine oil or operating fluids. If you have lost your owner's manual and are having difficulty determining what type of Sprinter oil to use, you may wish to refer to our BLAU® Sprinter Oil Change Kits; which match the correct Sprinter oil, oil filter, and hardware for each specific model and engine type.

* The OM642 and OM651 Sprinter engines can use a variety of Mercedes-Benz MB engine oil specs. At this time, the MB 229.52 oil spec is the newest and most up to date oil formulation for Sprinter diesel models equipped with diesel particulate filter emission systems. The MB 229.52 diesel oil quality specification will support the greatest diesel particulate filter emission system and EGR valve cleanliness and longevity. MB 229.52 can be used in place of MB 229.31, MB 229.51 oils specs recommended in older Sprinter diesel engine models.

** Any engine oil with MB 229.5 specification can replace MB 229.3. MB 229.3 oil specification should not be used in place of MB 229.5 spec.


Note: As time passes there may be newer MB spec engine oils created that may be backward compatible. That does not change the information above as listed. The oils listed will still be approved for the engine.
