Once or twice a month I have white smoke coming from bottom of engine near wheel . When I stop at stop sign or start up in morning . It enter my cab area so roll down windows . It is on the drivers side ,
You push The air recirculation mode button and it only stays on for about 15 minutes and then turns off you constantly have to keep pushing it on to keep them in the recirculation mode which wrong with it
after driving it and come to a stop and then put it into park and then shift to drive or any other gear it wont respond?

Can you access the back of the engine from inside the van? How do you access back of the engine?
Van was running very poorly and slowly. I found that there was no boost pressure at all. Eventually traced it to a blocked catalytic converter. Van was smoking and Egr valve was fluctuating between open and closed on tickover so blanked it off . Its running well now but want to know what the boost pressure should be.
My 2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 won't get out of Limp mode. It will temporarily reset, operate normal for a minute after stopping and restarting, but it goes right back into limp mode. My mechanic says it's the Turbo Pressure Control Valve. He said it cannot be replaced and that my only fix is to replace the whole turbo system. Does anyone know if:
1. the valve itself can be fixed or removed and replaced?
2. there is anyway to bypass the turbo so it can operate at a normal(ish) speed?
3. there is an alternative to R&R'ing the whole turbo system?
Thank you!
