The turbo has been replaced with a re-manufactured one before someone told me to never, ever, ever use a re-man turbo. Good luck, Terry Posted on Feb 01, 2011 Check the plastic muffler section just off the turbocharger, there is a history of them delaminating and blocking air flow, the computer reads this as turbocharger failure and shuts down the turbocharger. I'm getting the generic code of P0299 now. The Sprinter forum is great but you really need to sift through a lot of crap to find the useful stuff at times. That said, the turbo is the least likely culprit in most cases. P2359 Boost pressure value to high! Could a malfunctioning actuator be causing excess oil use? I closed both ends where the hoses connect, sprayed soapy water and found bubbles. This should be cleaned periodically, depending on your mileage and driving habits.
But it's going through quarts of oil much more quickly than it should. I'm not suggesting random parts replacement, just an offer to walk you through the steps if yer game. When things reach this stage, it can take 4-5 hours to disassemble the engine, and another 4-5 hours to clean everything up. I thought I might contribute to this forum in hopes that my experience would help someone else. The Sprinter's configuration options include passenger and cargo vans, three body lengths, two wheelbases 144 or 170 inches and three roof heights.
As in other full-size vans, the driver and front passenger sit perched high over the front wheels. They all seem to be relating to turbo pressure. The passenger van now includes an emergency exit window. If you have white or gray smoke, you may have an oil leak somewhere. Do you have black exhaust smoke, indicative of not enough boost for the current fueling level. That's the fastest and perhaps least expensive way to analyze a Sprinter. Dodge took a big risk shelving its traditional full-size van in favor of a European-inspired platform, but it appears American business has embraced the result.
The back doors open to the vehicle's full height and swing open 270 degrees. This pertains to anyone doing their own conversion or purchasing an existing unit. They've diagnosed and corrected a few things the last Dodge Sprinter dealer messed up. So I'll have to park it for now till I get another hose. Why not just blow compressed air in the intercooler and see if it comes out from the other end to see if it's really restricted? Is the wiring connection secure, does it look frayed? Due to its size, the 2008 Sprinter does not receive fuel economy ratings from the , but it has a 25-gallon fuel-tank capacity. Thanks, Kevin Kevin, What diagnostic unit was used to develop your codes listed above? As I said, right now I'm just seeing the generic code P0299.
Rob S; Did you replace the intercooler hose yet? Have a look at the thread that i started last week and particularly to issue 1 and the update in the following post. Also, maybe I should look into changing the turbo resonator? Are both sensors securely connected? You don't often see an error that points to the actual part. Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm. Once you get used to the odd driving position, the 2008 Dodge Sprinter feels quite maneuverable for those accustomed to driving large sport-utility vehicles or other vans. I'm going outside to stare at the engine and hope the car fairies magically.
Well, after he checked it out, this was his description. Perhaps what you remember isn't an exact quote? Hope this helps, Roger Roger1960, Ummm you keep putting out generic codes here. The Mercedes Sprinter delivers excellent fuel mileage, performance, and road handling compared to almost any other van in its class. It really needs a good scan dat interrogation once the boost pressure problem is resolved. Additionally, I would like to ask if anyone might think that the diesel particulate filter might need attention? Will be glad to help. We'll go to work, build your advertisement and find the right buyer.
Your engine is never going to run correctly with any sort of boost leak. I'm quite new to the Sprinter Odyssey so I'm not speaking from any point of certainty. After doing all that, I took it out on the road and I was finally successful in correcting the problem. I feel as I learn more about the engine that I am making progress, but I just can't seem to to get it perfect. Wondering if someone could advise me on the best approach to remove the intercooler on my 2008 Dodge Sprinter that has the 3. It is a good resource for a fairly daunting process.
Side-impact and side curtain airbags are also available. Only after all those things are done, would I even begin to pull the turbo off. I discovered it to be known as the intercooler hose on the hot side. Or do you know where there is an instruction video? Could be a simple sensor, a split hose, a hose leaking at one of the joints. When all is working you can see it move when someone steps quickly on gas. I hope sharing this might help someone else who might be having the same problems.
I was beginning to wonder if the inter cooler could be clogged? Also, three different seating configurations are offered in the 2008 Dodge Sprinter Wagon, with 9-, 10-, and 12-passenger capacities in up to four rows of seating. Also there is a map with users that posses Mercedes scan tools or premium scan tools with Mercedes enhanced data, you could look up someone near you and ask if they can retrieve the codes for you. The back doors open to the vehicle's full height and swing open 270 degrees. With the seats removed, the Sprinter's tall roof allows awe-inspiring cargo capacity. Even if the connection is secure and not frayed to both of these, either of these sensors could have gone bad. For 2008, the 12-passenger van includes an emergency exit window.
