JA: What is the model of your '07 Dodge?
Customer: 2500
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We put a new fuel the fuel pump in the gas tank I knew EGR valve newest curl activator a new map sensor I know air flow sensor
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: It will start and idle all day it is when you go to Kohl's when it when your speed the engine up

What are the current codes that are coming up in a vehicle scan?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I don't have the cold here right now
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I'm not going to pay $26 to do it on the telephone or through on the text
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
What else do you want to know are you here yet
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The only code that did come up where exhaust temperature codes
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

Exhaust temperature codes will cause limp mode. Do you know the actual "P Codes" that were retrieved? If you can post the actual codes, I can give you some ideas as to what may be wrong..

Take your time, we can continue here whenever you are ready....

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The code that we pulled off I have at work tomorrow morning at 5 o'clock I'll I'll post it to you
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The other thing that it is doing that gate or regulator for the turbo that never goes down and then it only runs to 3000 we can take off the mass flow sensor wire and it works better sometimes
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

This is all tied together, this is part of "Limp Mode". When the ECM detects a problem that can cause damage to the engine or exhaust system it will put the engine into limp mode and will NOT allow turbo boost. This is why the boost actuator will not move properly..

I'll be here when you post tomorrow...

I also need to let you know that my responses may be delayed because I may be helping another customer, or I may be temporarily offline. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.

Thank you...

NF code p0087 and code P 2420
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
We put another a different reader on it I come up with p0110 intake air temperature circuit and 0-100 mass volume air flow circuit Anna p242f accumulator ash
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

I'm posting some diagnostic info on those codes posted. At this time, you may need to run a stationary regen to get the P242F to go stored. If it won't run, you may need a new DPF if it is plugged. This can be checked by inspecting the DPF outlet. If it is damaged you will need to replace the DPF. You may be getting the MAF codes if you have an intake leak or the DPF is plugged so keep this in mind. Since the two scanners had different results, To make sure that the codes retrieved are correct, I recommend scanning at the dealer as many of the "Generic" Scanners or Code Readers have problems communicating with Sprinters and due to that, either are unable to retreive codes, or the "generic" codes that are retreived can sometimes be incorrect....

For now I'll post some helpful info on the codes that you did post:

P0110 --->> Click Here to view <<---

P0100 --->> Click Here to view <<--- MAF HI --->> Click Here to view <<--- MAF LO

P242F --->> Click Here to view <<---

P2626 --->> Click Here to view <<---

Read through all these docs to get some ideas as to what to do, If you need help let me know, I'll be happy to step you through diagnosis if necessary...

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

I have a lot better scanner now that we're working with when we were driving down the road there's only 1.5 volts going to the injection pump and the opposite the sensor for the foot feed is only putting in like 12 to 15 and 25% we think that it's is not starving for fuel and you're going to put in there that sensor by the foot feed
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
We are going to replace the accelerator sensor
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The three main code that came up when we were just good together work for fuel at the rack pressure not high enough
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

Do you mean the accelerator pedal assembly? The Accelerator Position Sensor is part of the Accelerator pedal. You didn't post any codes for the APPS circuits, APPS won't cause the codes that you posted....

Which 3 main codes are you referring to? Post the actual codes here....

Thank you,

Robert

Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

Here is an equivalent diagnostic chart for the P0087. Keep in mind that it is best to scan with Witech Scan system (Factory scanner) for best code results.....

P0087 - --->> Click Here to view <<---

Let me know which are the 3 main codes that you are basing the accelerator sensor replacement on and I'll give you my thoughts...

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

The clothes that we pulled off and on a good scanner are 2359 2021 2017 2047 and 2626 and when we drove will need 1.5 volts to the injection pump and then settle accelerator only was wondering about 25% when we had it to the floor
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

How many miles are on this Sprinter?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
400000
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

Has the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) ever been replaced?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Do you mean the catalytic converter
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

No, The catalytic converter is before the DPF. The catalytic converter is first in line out of the turbo exhaust outlet, the DPF is further downstream next to the transmission pan and before the muffler... Has this ever been replaced?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
81 only runs at Harley at all so we I cut that off and put a pipe in between it just today now I drive but it stops like you try to go a little 50 or 60 but it stops periodically
Expert:  Robert replied 9 months ago.

Ok, this last round of codes that you have posted WILL all cause LIMP MODE. At this time, I recommend to solve these codes and the engine should run normal. The P2359 is for low boost so you need to look carefully for causes for low turbo boost. Intercooler hoses are common along with possibly the intercooler itself. Another possibility is the Turbo Resonator. Lastly a failed turbocharger can be the cause...

Three of the other codes are related to fuel rail pressure. The most common cause of these codes would be a plugged fuel filter. Replace it if it hasn't been replaced yet. If that is not it, the cause could be anything from fuel pressure solenoid, fuel quantity valve, worn out injectors or worn out injection pump... You will need to run appropriate fuel return and volume tests to find this cause...

The P2626 is the one for a plugged DPF. Since you have installed a "test pipe" you must get this code to go stored before it will be allowed to clear. This code may cause limp mode also. To get the code to go stored, run the "initialize DPF using a NEW DPF" routine and perform the MAF sensor initialization procedure. Also you will need to verify that the correct "injector correction codes" are entered into the ECM as this can cause some of these codes also such as the P2359... All these routines require a "Capable Scanner"....

Here are some more diagnostic procedures for this last round of codes:

P2359 --->> Click Here to view <<---

P2021 --->> Click Here to view <<---

P2017 --->> Click Here to view <<---

P2047 --->> Click Here to view <<---

I already posted the chart for the P2626 above...

Read through these to determine some additional possibilities...

Once you get all these codes to clear and remain cleared, the vehicle WILL run correctly....

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert
