Preventative maintenance extends the life of your vehicle’s parts and saves you from expensive repairs. Some of the most expensive repairs are done to the powertrain components, so it’s important to give extra consideration to these components. By properly maintaining these parts in your Freightliner or Mercedes Benz Sprinter cargo van, you can save thousands of dollars over the vehicle’s lifetime, and increase it’s usefulness for additional years.
Basic preventative maintenance includes changing transmission fluids, coolant and oil replacement, air and oil filter replacement and tire rotations. Many manufacturers recommend a major service interval at every 30,000 miles or so. Of course, depending on the strain put on your Sprinter van, plus its age, it may be a good idea to take care of your Mercedes Benz Sprinter repair needs sooner.
Texas’s extreme heat and humidity, paired with stop and go traffic en route to service calls can place additional stress on your Sprinter’s brakes, transmission, and other drivetrain components. The summer’s heat will take an additional toll on your fluid in your Sprinter's transmission, which is used to keep your Sprinter's transmissions lubricated and cool. Over time, the fluid breaks down and the additives that once protected the moving parts in your car can become problematic, creating sludge that can lead to a breakdown. This is just an example of how a little preventative maintenance could save you time and money down on your Mercedes Benz Sprinter repair needs.
