Mercedes Benz is a worldwide leader in automotive performance. And as renowned as they are for their luxury cars, they provide reliable and durable Sprinter Vans. These types of vehicle have multiple uses. Other than being an invaluable partner in business and deliveries, they can also be converted into living trailers or motorhomes.

While these vans are strong, they require regular maintenance. Repairs to these vans can be costly, but luckily, Sprinter van parts are available in authorized dealerships in Idaho and other locations around the U.S. Warner Vans of Utah recommends maintaining your van regularly to prevent unnecessary spending. Here are some things you can do for your Sprinter van:

Service A and B Checklist

One of the great things about the Sprinter van is its ability to tell you when servicing is required. Your Sprinter van will come with two sets of check lights: one is for Service A and the other for Service B. It is advisable to do each service every 10,000 miles. Do Service A for 10,000 and once your mileage reaches 20,000, go for Service B and so on.

Some of the things to do for Service A include:

  • Oil change
  • Checking the tire pressure
  • Inspecting brake pads
  • Changing the cabin air filter
  • Changing the engine air filter

Checking the levels of fluids, such as:

  • Coolant
  • Transmission fluid
  • Power Steering fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Resetting the service light

Things to do for Service B are the following:

  • Oil change
  • Fuel filter change
  • Checking the tire pressure
  • As well as the other jobs in Service A

It is important to reset your service lights after each round so that your maintenance schedule is accurate.

Other Van Maintenance Tips

Another thing you can check on your own is your van’s lights. Broken lights are hazardous on the road and at the very least can cost you a ticket. If you work in a particularly dusty environment, be sure to clean your head and taillights of any blockage to make them fully visible on the road. Having fully functional lights is important to avoid accidents on the road.

Keeping your van clean will not only improve its resale value but also your business’ reputation. Clean both the outside and inside of your van regularly and use seat protectors and covers to protect the interior against mud and dirt.

Visit a service center regularly to check your van’s performance and condition. An experienced mechanic can diagnose problems and provide the right services to fix them. They can also teach you some effective maintenance practices or routines, which can help you take care of your vehicle.

Your sprinter van is an investment that can help take your business to the next level. With regular maintenance, that vehicle can take you from Point A to Point B for many years to come. You can ensure your safety whenever you are on the road. Follow these tips and look for the right maintenance partner to make sure you are on top of everything when it comes to caring for your Sprinter van.
