Oil change

Information overload. I took the easy way out and just got the Mobil 1 ESP 0W-30.

Bought the 4 DVD set maintenance manual. If you are a DIYer like myself it has plenty of good info. that will come in handy, especially after the warranty runs out.
Does require lots of hard drive space; I think approx 40 gigs.

Sprinter Parts

Have you had a chance to go through any of it. Also I have completed my Tow vehicle charging system. Have not uncovered the Solera yet to test it.

I have gone through quite a bit of the manual. It has the repair section and parts section along with much other info. It takes a while to load, but once up it is fairly fast. It contains all MB from 1996 to 2014 including all Sprinters. Plug in my VIN number and it pulls info for my machine. You can even bring up the data plate for each specific VIN.

Also has a program for getting component prices. Enter the part number from the parts catalog and it brings up the price in EUROS . A little converting and you get an idea of the cost.

The program does use a VirtualPC that comes on the disk to run.

Looks like this program does not have any 2014 Sprinters in the data base.
If you have a 2014 chassis it will not cover it.

Looks like I am in luck. I have a 2014 Solera but the Sprinter is a 2013.

From what I have been able to determine, the info. for the 2014 is there. You just can't look it up using the VIN number. Supposedly model number and engine number will work.

Just to follow up on the Tow Vehicle charging system. The pin out on the package for the Road Master 146-7 7-6 pin cable is wrong. If you get this cable use the Wiring diagram @roadmasterinc.com for the 7-6 pin cable. I Used a meter to check the functions before I wired it. Just habit. Works great by the way.

For those who do their own oil changes here is the maintenance reset procedure.
