SOURCE: Servicing my Mercedes C200

Gearbox -> Synthetic automatic transmission fluid
Differential -> Either 90W engine oil or 85W90 gear lubricant
Engine oil -> Not really sure of the weather in Uganda but I take it it stays pretty warm all year long, probably 20W-40 or 15W-40 synthetic
Spark plugs -> Well there could be a long debate over that... if you're having engine performance/missing problems i'd try replacing them right away but with any gasoline ignition system i try to replace the plugs about once a year... plug wires about 5 years... regardless of condition. In my case, i don't usually go for expensive "platinum" or whatever kind of plug that costs about 10 times as much and usually don't do much of a difference... I'd rather buy reasonably priced spark plugs and replace them regularly, and get a much better result and more money in my pockets... because even if you did buy the expensive ones you usually end up replacing them at about the same time you would have the cheaper ones, with the same effect

Checking automatic transmission fluid level in mercedes benz sprinter 313 cdi no dipstick supplied.


I don't know why they did this, But other manufacturers are going this way. The consumer can't check the transmission fluid. They have to go to a shop. You can get the stick online. Yours at operating temps are 16 to 17, or 160 to 170, depending on the stack you get. The stick is cable with a metal piece on the end. Push it down until it bottoms out. If you shove it to far/ force it. You have to remove the oil pan to get it out.

Mercedes sprinter 2007 315 cdi dropped big end bearings this is the second engine to do this


All engines will have a main bearing failure. They often have a blockage that prevents oil from cooling it down properly. Only a regular engine teardown can prevent this.

2003 Mercedes-benz Sprinter cdi 316 cuts out and doesn't start


Hi, My thoughts exactly ( fuel leak). Is this a deisel or gas engine?
In both cases be very careful with lights or cigarettes.
You can smell it when you get out of car in a garage or stall.
Good luck.

I am thinking of buying a sprinter 2006 , 3500. . It has about 126000 kms on it . I dont really know anything about sprinters. Can you tell me if they are reliable. The seller always had the maintenance...


Make sure it has had the correct motor oil used, the MB Diesel uses a special oil, that has to meet MB229.51 Spec. Make them prove it. Just because a Dealer did it, does not mean the correct oil was put in. Unless the correct oil has been used, I would pass. You can always have the oil analyzed to see if there is any abnormal wear in the engine.
