I wrote Dodge for 07 info and I've pasted their reply. I'm also interested to know if Dodge will make a Sprinter passenger model that's geared toward families: DVD, Stereo/CD, GPS, Rear camera, nice seats (possible leather), etc... Johnny
We are pleased to read of your interest in the 2007 Dodge Sprinter. This vehicle is expected to arrive in dealerships in the fall of 2006. At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not officially announced the pricing and full product specifications for the 2007 Dodge Sprinter models. More information should become available to us as well as being posted on the Dodge website closer to the official release date of the 2007 models. We encourage you to stay in contact with Dodge.com and your local Dodge dealership as further information becomes available.

Dealer told me that they are still importing the 2007's from Germany, just like all the past sprinters; they are only putting them back together in the U.S.
The process is: they build them in Germany, partially disassemble them, ship them to the U.S., reassemble them. They get around some tarifs and taxes that way because they are importing parts, not vehicles.

Bsperty... Please don't scream. The system don't tell me to replace the oil so often, I just did it because the break in period. The chevron delo 400 is the best oil for the sprinter it run very smooth and because is so cheep I will replace it every 4 to 5k miles. If you like syn go for it it will cost no harm to the engine, but for me delo 400 is been proven to be the best....

Thanks for the info. However, for this oil change, I would rather get the filter locally rather than wait and pay shipping as well. The local "good old boys" auto parts store has the Hastings filters in stock, $8. Because the oil was so dark and thick, I don't know if it had ever been changed before (20k). I am going to use a cheaper non-syn oil for this change, and then change it again in a few thousand miles to the Mobil-1 0-40. That way I can clean some of the gunk out before doing what I hope will be a 15k oil change (and $75 worth of oil!). I may order a case of filters if the end price is comparable.

bsperty - typing in all caps on an internet forum is considered "shouting". It also makes things difficult to read.
Try posting without your caps locked.

I am tring to get information on purchasing and customizing a Dodge Sprinter van for my family (6 kids). Nothing to fancy like Airstream but more that the box it comes as (and preferably not white). Does anybody know of a dealership that does this?

Surlyoldbill....The 0w-40 oil is very thing and the engine will shatter very loud and also the configuration is not for diesel engine. The delo 400 is an cl4+ oil made for diesel and when you use it the engine will run smooth and not loud at all. The oil will get dirty at about 6000 miles of use, for a dino is the best. The Sprinter will work better with dino but also I replaced mine at 6000 miles not at ten as the book said. to me if you can replaced the oil at 5000 miles, the better. -The cleaner the oil the better will run. That is my opinion.
