Mercedes-Benz Sprinter MWB 2005

4 star review

I bought my Sprinter MWB van with 100,000 miles on, two years ago. It has been a dream, serviced twice a year, not a thing bad to say mechanically about it. Would not hesitate in buying another. The body work as a few rust spots here and there, which is not good for a 55plate van. In my opinion the best van on the road.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2005

4 star review

The van is ok but if you have the box van it’s not good! I mean for (1. I have a turbo problem (2. It’s limited to 80mph not like its going to go that fast. Make sure you get the twin wheel sprinter P reg to 01 plate, far better vans. Could anyone tell me why my turbo isn’t working? Please get back to me.

I run a Sprinter 311cdi and also had a turbo problem. Usually the turbo is ok, but the problem occurs if you lose pressure in the ’blown’ section. This can be caused by loose pipes or a cracked intercooler matrix or split rubber tubes. I hope this helps - Roger Abrahams from Norfolk

I have a 2000 lwb 311cdi had turbo problems there is a electrical vac valve under the air filter costs about £80.00 from Merc, need to remove grill and light to change fix problem straight away. Prior to this engine would only rev to 3000rpm with no faults or lights showing up on scan, as this is a mechanical fault there will be no codes shown up - Arvi Singh from England

Hi, I have a Luton 311 CDI and I had problems with lack of power, I changed the boost pressure valve under the airfilter box and it is now back to full power, I hope this helps - Andrew Roberts from Leicestershire
