Sprinter V6 auto, 2007 with 280,000 miles on it, full details below.
Ok, this one has a intermittent fault, but does seem to happen most times about 1/2 mile after cold start, still happens hot but random intervals. Vehicle loses power (feel's similar to being in limp) but ease foot off accelerator & put back on and power is restored, no eml light, no fault codes logged.
It does logs 4 x heater plug faults from cold start but had fault occur hot with no glow plug fault, this has had a couple of glow plug faults logged for last 6 years while we have been looking after it, plugs are seized and no start or DPF issues so been left.
On arrival it had a 'exhaust back pressure sensor fault logged, this has been sorted with new sensor and clearing port, no improvement on problem, MAF look pretty contaminated (not surprising at mileage) fitted a new bosch to eliminate it, no change.
I did manage a very quick look at live data while faulting, APP read 98% boost target & measured both 1200. likewise fuel pressure was around 650 bar. from this it looked like some thing was 'requesting' reduced torque.
Had a ABS /ESP next, numerous random fault codes which cleared and did not return after faulting. Live data showed and air gap issue on o/s/ r which has been sorted with no improvement. Brake pedal sensor seemed a bit quick to switch so have adjusted that slightly to.
Auto gearbox shows a 'clutch lock up fault' which clears but returns on road test, live data would indicate some slip and at tha mileage not surprising, again I feel that is a long term issue and not relevant.
So suggestions please !
