POPULAR SPRINTER MODELS
The Sprinter Cargo Van, popular among businesses for its spaciousness and reliability, has come with its set of challenges over the years. A prevalent issue we’ve seen in our auto shop is related to the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) system, which can lead to engine derating if malfunctioning. The turbocharger has, on occasion, presented issues either with its actuator or with clogged intakes. Another frequent concern relates to the electronic systems, particularly the sensors and modules, which might throw up error codes and require recalibration or replacement.
The Crew Van, designed to carry both cargo and crew, shares some common issues with the Cargo Van. The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve, integral to the diesel engine’s operation, can sometimes fail or get clogged, affecting performance and emissions. We’ve also noticed problems with the automatic transmission, where rough shifting or hesitations have been reported. Brake wear, especially with the vehicle often being loaded close to its maximum capacity, is more pronounced, requiring more frequent maintenance.
Serving as a people mover, the Sprinter Passenger Van tends to face issues slightly different from its cargo-carrying counterparts. Air conditioning issues, given the larger cabin space, have been frequent – either related to the compressor or the blower motors. There’ve been instances of electrical malfunctions with the lighting, both interior and exterior. Furthermore, suspension components, considering the weight and frequent stopping and starting, have shown signs of premature wear, especially in the shock absorbers and struts.
The Sprinter Cab Chassis, often customized for specific business needs, presents its unique set of challenges. The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) system has been a cause for concern, with some units clogging prematurely, affecting engine performance. Due to its configuration and the custom bodies often added, alignment issues leading to uneven tire wear have been a problem. We’ve also encountered fuel system issues, particularly with the high-pressure fuel pump and injectors, which can sometimes lead to poor engine performance or unexpected shutdowns.
