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.

Testimonial: "thanks for your advice, this is being done at the moment and im waiting for the results along with the costs of repair.Mercedes sprinters seem to have a long history of mechanicle failures, and i put it down to lower cost parts being made.Mercedes is not producing high quality sprinters as what they were in the past,when every part was manufactured in Germany."

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

SOURCE: Service engine soon

hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.

SOURCE: need to reset service indicator on a mercedes

A little acrobatic exercise for you............

1/ Put the Key in the # 2 position .

2/ Hit the "MI" button on the dash twice .

3/ Put the Key in the # 0 position (key out position) within 10 seconds of hitting the MI Button .

4/ Press the MI Button and turn the key into the # 2 position at the same time. There will be a confirmation noise .

5/ Release, Smile...and be on your way, your all done. !

If I buy a new central locking key for my sprinter can I programme it myself ?


Def not,

Take it to a key cutter with appropriate software to mate it to your spare key

As a second note keep your key bunch light on 2008 sprinter or you'll break the esr ring

Electronic sensor ring - big bucks to fix and lots of downtime. This happened to me.

Esr ring if it goes will leave electronic solenoid in steering lock engaged and once you've had the sprinter put on the back of a truck and taken to main dealer they replace key box and then everything has to be re- paired with ecu

Big big bucks.

But a great van :-)

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.

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.
