Question about 2007 Dodge Sprinter

1 Answer


I recently replace an engine on my 2006 sprinter after 188,000 miles.$10000 was the cost but my question is why did it blow? There was a torn piece of metal came off the upper cam shaft (you could see it by opening the oil cap and look in). I was told once you can't idle these engines for very long , but I can't get a clear anwser to this. I use additives in my fuel, oil changes every 10000 miles, fuel filters replaced every 15000,but the engine still blew.I'm out 1 year profits, but I need to know why it blew so it does'nt happen again.

If youve done 188,000 miles in two years then i suspect that vehicle has more than most contributed to your bottom line.old age,wear and tear,metal fatigue,over reving,over loaded,broken timing belt,to name just a few of many possible reasons why it failed but at the end of the day it has done a lot of mileage in a very short time.Other contributing factor may be driver/s style and type of traffic conditions city/hiway.Without spending obcene amounts of money x raying and testing to attempt to isolate the exact reason no one in thier right mind would give you a specific reason for the failure.Good luck,hope someone else can think of something

2006 dodge sprinter key bent, need programer

Hi, I don't know about the Sprinter 2006 Truck.However, when I bought my Toyota Yaris recently I also only received one key. I told the supplier that when I trade in my car I gave them two keys and both were the auto open press button type. They eventually supplied me with a copy key without the auto open press button type. I was told to get one of these would cost ME $300. I can't afford that. However, I recently noticed in a shopping centre that the ..and I think it's the Minute Footwear Repairs while you wait people offer a reasonable supply service. But they are not everywhere. One MFR will be able to advise you which of their branch supply this service. Be careful using this sort of key as I also understand, that with WiFi these sorts of keys can be scanned easily, and you could have your car/truck stolen.
Good Luck.

2006 Sprinter 2500 does not warm up when cold out. Engine temp stay low, no heat in cab. Fluids are fine. any idea?

Sounds to me like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace that and your problems should be fixed. Cheap fix as well.
