Customer Question
I have to replace my...
I have to replace my coolant temperature sensor and can't find it on my 2008 Sprinter 3500 diesel?
Could you please help me locate it?
Even Freightliner has sent me on a wild goose chase. Can you send me a picture to make sure we are looking at the same engine. Everything that I found online doesn't look like my engine at all?
