SOURCE: LOW OIL LIGHT

well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard

heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
vacume leak
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools

I've had the same problem with my truck. It's not unusual for one to have to re-prime the fuel pump. just turn the key on, let it sit for a second, and when you no longer hear the fuel pump priming fuel (sounds like a whining noise before you start the engine), crank it up.

As the vehicle has just had a full service your van shouldn't be suffering those problems and you should return to the repairer and complain bitterly, do a war dance or whatever it takes for them to finish the job and deliver what you paid for.

If your Sprinter is fuel injected and catalysed there will be nothing to adjust but you need to know the CO2 content rises as the engine runs more efficiently while it is the CO level that should fall.

There are many reasons for poor fuel economy other than high exhaust emissions but after a proper full service the vehicle should already be running as efficiently as possible.

Does the starter turn on but engine will not run? Could be corrosion or rust.

If the starter does does not turn on & rotate the engine then check the starter terminals, disconnect and clean with a toothbrush size wire brush.
Do the same with the battery terminals and the negative ground cables that go from the negative side of the battery to the body & engine block.
Also do the same with the positive going to the fuse box. Clean terminals. Also check all fuses !

After all that and the starter still will not work then it is likely your starter solenoid or the starter itself either way - you have to replace them as a whole. They do not sell them separately anymore.
