A few weeks ago I posted, "I may have a possibility for Sprinter service, but want to check his qualifications first. He serviced my previous diesel pusher and did excellent work. I hear he does a lot of Sprinter work, but before I give his name I want to verify that."
Jeff Spear at Bend RV Repair (Bend RV Repair :: Home
) can service our MB sprinters (non-warranty service).
I knew Jeff had previous Sprinter service experience and was very happy with him when he serviced my diesel pusher. I asked him several questions and here is is reply:
"To answer your questions I like to use MANN brand filters I think that is the oem type. We use either the mobil 1 or royal purple also has a oil with the proper spec. 229.52 Whats most important with the oil is a low ash/soot rating for the egr system, there are a few new oils coming to market that will meet this spec one from shell and I think castrol so sprinter owners will soon have more to choose from and this will hopefully drive the oil cost down some. I like to suggest about a 10,000 mile change 20 is just to long we have seen more emissions system problems with the 20k service than with 10k services."
I will have my 2015 Solera serviced by Jeff this summer. I do plan to request the Mobil 1, however.
Hope this is of benefit to Central Oregon MB Sprinter owners.
