Sprinter Van Repair

Local, Family-Oriented Import Car Repair

Precision Imports services all Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Dodge Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter work and camper vans. All three vans are based on the same engine platform provided by Mercedes-Benz, which we specialize in. Getting your Sprinter vans back on the road quickly and safely is our priority; we understand that time is money.

Sprinter vans have long been the choice work vehicle due to their comfort, adaptability, and available features. However, they tend to need a higher level of service than your average passenger vehicle. That’s why it’s very important that you have Sprinter van repair done regularly by a qualified service technician.

Below are a few of the most common repairs we perform on Sprinters, along with their corresponding customer complaints. We’ve also included a list of recommended routine Sprinter maintenance items that should be performed on a regular basis.

Serpentine Belt and Pulley Replacement

  • These wear parts are the number one cause of roadside breakdowns, resulting in expensive tow bills and costly, not to mention inconvenient, down-time.
  • Be sure to have your van serviced if you hear squealing belts or can see visible signs of wear.

Glow Plug, Nox Sensor, or Def Tank Heater Replacement

  • You may have a check engine light on or a “Start Countdown” on the dash.
  • Your Sprinter van will not start again after the countdown has expired, without the proper installation of one of the above parts.

Intake Manifold Flap Replacement or Locating Boost Pressure Leaks

  • Both repairs are common when customers complain of no power or the Sprinter is in “limp mode”.

Braking System & Suspension Component Replacement

  • With Sprinters covering many miles each day, having good brakes and maneuvering ability is important for the safety of the driver as well as the other motorists sharing the road.
  • Keep your van driving and riding as nice as it should, after all, it’s one of the reasons people choose Sprinter vans over the competition.

Oil Cooler Seal Replacement

  • If you notice oil spots on your garage floor or parking lot under your Sprinter, it’s quite likely the oil cooler seals. It’s the most common leak we repair on Sprinter vans.

Oil Change

  • Gas engines typically need an oil change every 3,000-5,000 miles, while diesel Sprinters go about 10,000 miles between.

Transmission Service

  • Make sure your Sprinter van transmission is performing perfectly and help eliminate costly repairs by having it serviced every 80,000 miles.

A/C Service

  • Whether your Sprinter van is for fun or work, make sure you get your A/C serviced at least one a year, likely in the Spring so you aren’t left sweating it out.

Radiator Service

  • Flushing your radiator should be done every 60,000 miles to keep antifreeze clean and free of sludge.
