are they different? where is a scematic showing which lines go together? I have tank out and mixed up on conections.
I had a bad smell coming from my air system too. When I changed the fresh air filter (under the hood) I noticed mud at the bottom of the air filter compartment. OH! This can't be right! Using a long screwdriver and a narrow paint scraper, I found about 1-inch of mud and gunk in the bottom. Further cleaning, I discovered there is a drain with a rubber outlet that had gotten clogged. A thorough cleaning in front of and behind the filter solved the problem. A shot of Febreze helped too. You could probably hang an air freshener from the filter if you like.
My Sprinter refused to start. It cranked just fine and I tried this several times in rapid succession. Weather and temperature was not a factor. Had it hauled to nearest dealer ($75) where dealer attempted to FLASH the ECM ($250). Now dealer tells me the ECM is dead and a new one will cost $1.700 and the install with all other work performed so far will run me $2,200! I found a repair facility in Victor, NY that claims they will repair my bad ECM for $450 in one day, give it a Lifetime Warranty and ship it back in 1-day! The outfit is called ​KLEIN BOTTLE COMPUTER. Has anyone heard of them or used them? Here's the site ...

I own a 2008 sprinter/Winnebago ViewJ 24' RV which I store over the Wisconsin winters. I've purchased a 5 watt solar charger. Can I attach it to the + post in the engine and body frame part and feel confident that it will trickle charge the battery over the winter or use the cigarette lighter plug?
About 8 days ago I had my vehicle in to the nearest sprinter dealer (120 miles away). They replaced the EGR valve and two glow plugs. I drove home with no issues. The following day the ESP light started coming on after driving a few miles (usually about 8-10) and I called the dealer. They told me to deactivate the ESP with the ASR switch following each engine start until I can get back into the shop. I do that but the ESP sight will still come after driving a few miles (this varies). I was also told the cruise control may not work but it does.

My question is: could this be a sensor and if so where is it located and can I replace it myself without the use of diagnostic equipment?
I recently had the egr valve replace and two glow plugs. I drove home (120) miles from the dealer with no problems. The next day the ESP light started coming on after driving about 8 or 10 miles. I called the dealer and that until I can get back to the dealer to just deactivate the ASR with the switch on the dash after each start. I do that but the light still occasionally comes on. i was also told that the cruise control would not work but it does. Could this be a sensor problem, if so, where is it located and can I replace it without needing diagnostics?
my dealership says that the noise my brakes seem to be making on my passenger shuttle are actually loose lower ball joints and mean I need ne lower control arms. He is quoting me $1475 - out of warranty! Is this reasonable?
