The Sprinter maintenance schedule has been optimized through out the last model years. If older maintenance logbooks show different schedules, it is recommended to use the new intervals as listed above. Always check the maintenance history, in order to determine which work is required.
When performing an oil change on your Sprinter, make sure to add the correct quantity of oil, which is 9.5 quarts (with filter replacement, which is required with every oil change). Under filling, as well as over filling the engine, may result in damage to the engine or create drivability issues. The dipstick is designed to be used only with a “hot” engine and oil that has reached operating temperature (unless it is a cold engine dipstick with a yellow handle, which is available for certain fleets only). Furthermore, please keep in mind that the new oil is still “cold” after it has been changed even though the engine may be hot. A Sprinter engine having an oil level at the maximum level on the dipstick at 70°F (oil temperature), will actually be ¾ quart overfilled
