Sprinter Diagnostic Displays...

Does anyone know how to interpret these various displays? A few are relatively obvious (there's a "Volt" screen) but most are pretty obscure.

Dave
I know that "31" is also an oil change interval reset.
Dave you have the DVDs so if you do a search for "reset" or "assyst" you will find a plethora of information that is mostly worthless to us end users.
It does explain somethings that are interesting.

I am still searching for a more definitive list of codes.

Mixing Mobil Oil Question to Mobil: Since you are no longer making Mobil 1 ESP X1 5W-40 weight, may I mix Mobil 1 ESP X1 0W-30 that you are making into my MB Sprinter 3500? I have a few quarts left over and will do one more oil change with the Mobil 1 ESP X1 5W-40. Thanks.

Dan, You can mix our oils they are compatible and meet the same Mercedes specification.

Thanks Capt Dan! I was planning on doing that anyway, but good to hear from the horses mouth.

BTW, the 20,000 & 10,000 mile oil change and maintence reset procedures are the same.

Can anyone comment on using the Mityvac 7300 Fluid Evacuator
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000JF...luid+evacuator
for doing their Sprinter Oil Change? Thinking about picking one up on Amazon for $103.88. Do you need additional tubing to reach the bottom of the oil pan? The good and the bad feedback would be appreciated.

Gravity via the drain plug is cheaper, faster and more dependable.

These gadgets are only useful when you cannot easily reach the oil pan drain plug, such as in a boat bilge.

Bought one. Much faster to do it through drain plug. Tank not large enough to evac all without emptying one time. Oil must be hot or it takes a very long time and you must pump it frequently to keep it going. It is good for evacing oil from the filter bowel. Also ok for changing generator oil. Comes with enough tubing to get to the bottom of pan.
I will use it for other vehicles I have, but would not buy it again for just the Sprinter. This is just me.
