8x28 for oil
rest is labor
Next question.. My appt is Monday
now it is not doing it as often and as I said only when slowing down from low speeds.
We had a 90x2 mile trip planned 90 percent on the interstate.
Would it bother you if it was yours?
There was no way I was doing a flush anyway. I just wanted your recommendation. Surprised
the dealership is recommending it.
I have 30k and it was never changed so now I am going to the bank for a loan! kidding...
How often should I change oil and fuel filter.
Any other recommendations for now or in the future?
I have an extended warranty which as been good to deal with. Not Dodge.
In your opinion if the converter is bad do you believe they will say this is a factory defect as a way out? Especially considering the bulletin?
Sorry for all of the question but I want to be sure about all of this.
EXPENSIVE if I am wrong!!
What kind of loan would a toque converter parts and labor cost?
Thanks for your help. If you don't mind I am going to leave this open one more day so that gives me time to complete the transmission fluid change just in case I have any more questions. Thanks
The fluid and filter change did fix the problem but I have one last question.
68021352-AA Plug adapter 21003015 was added to the bill
What is this and its function?
This is my 2nd time with you. You have really helped me. The problems are now gone. (Had to rob the bank for 500 bucks but the alternative of a converter will require multiple banks.)
Hope you don't run from my future problems.
You are the best!!!!
obviously i am not working this correctly. I was looking for your recommendations on what problems to look for and maybe at around milage. Thanks
This is the response the other guy gave and I am hopeing you can agree or.and add to this. I will be unloading this soon if the oil cooler is frequent or at early milage. Please let me know what you think. Thanks
Ok, I see turbo issues frequently caused by the turbo resonator located at turbo and intercooler hose, splitting and causing turbo boost pressure loss. You will get the check engine light and the code will be P0299. if not taken care of soon, this can lead to turbo failureI also see oil cooler failures, causing oil in the coolant, quite a bit. So if you see oil in the coolant, 99% of the time it will be this and not a headgasket issueI have seen a few transmission failures on this Sprinter, but nothing out of the ordinary in terms of unusually large percentage. Pay attention to harsh/delayed upshifting which usually is the beginning of failure. Staying on top of your transmission fluid services is the single biggest way to prevent this.I have seen some various engine sensor failures, but again, nothing out of the ordinary.And I have seen quite a few with ac evaporator failures. Nothing you can do to prevent this, and if your ac suddenly starts blowing hot, have it dye tested which will likely point to the evaporator
I assume the filter is the oil filter and I will have to find a picture of the other hoses and where they are.
Aother thing that needs periodic maintenance are the intercooler hoses, they will split after several years of operation.. The left hose starts seeping oil and soon after the hose will split.. The right hose usually lasts a bit longer but I usually replace them in pairs....
Now, if I want to recommend you to other sprinter owners can/how they get directly to you on this site?
Is the only money you make is the tip we give? Geeze I don't have enough money to pay you for your great advice
