    I believe it was something that they could have done last week. Too much Def fluid being used and also Dpf building up Ash. All they done was updated the software and reprogram everything . A $315.00 bill yesterday.

    Seems they just put parts in and that was it last week. They also told me that my Dpf and Cadillac converter and a new exhaust line will soon need to be replace :rolleyes:

    Had a driver call me yesterday and was told from another Sprinter driver that MB was replacing Def systems. Don't know about that but will check and see.

    Called a MB dealership and he told me that there wasn't anything like that going on with vans out of warranty. He ask the service manager, parts department, and the warranty specialist and all three of them said it's news to them. I've got 300k so it wouldn't apply to me.

    I got a letter in the mail the other day letting me know about a new recall on my 05 Sprinter. The computer needs to be reprogramed for something or another. Weird.

    I got it too. You have a Freightliner, don't you? Whatever you do, stay away from the dealers. They will update it whether you want it or not. They discovered that in some situations you might actually have a problem with the MAF sensor, I believe, and the check engine light will not come on to alert you. A guy did it and after he left the dealership check engine light came on.........

    Yep, it's to update the ECU for the MAF sensor to get an engine light if it fails.

    Stay away from the dealers? Does that mean I shouldn't get the update? Because, if I go to a Freightliner dealer on purpose, it will be to have the update done. I don't live near a Freightliner dealer, so it'll be one out on the road someplace, if I do it. As long as I don't have a fuel efficiency problem, and aren't running rough at idle, I wouldn't think the MAF sensor is failing or failed, anyway.

    The letter also says it takes 3.3 hours to perform the work. Seriously? I can install Windows 10 on a fresh machine in a hour.

    Happy Friday to all. Great customer event last night and we collected well over 1,000 toys!

    Another day...another airplane for me.

    If you don't want the 'fix' then stay away from the dealers. This is a mandatory update to comply with epa and they will "fix' your van whether you want it or not.

    A guy showed up to the dealer with a perfectly running van, had the update then left the dealer and a few minutes late, bam!!!! Check engine light!! Turned right back and they said, 'well, you have a bad maf'. Lots of dollars.

    I personally won't have my van 'fixed'

    And another Monday morning with what I think should be the last flight of the year. Hope everyone is doing well. Another good busy week last week.

    Winter solstice, y'all. If you're into pagan rituals this must be a great moment for you. But for the rest of us, the days are just gonna keep getting longer and the nights shorter. Yay.
