 My dodge sprinter, 2006, winnebago's turbo resonator has failed on me twice, 11-5-2007 and 5-28-2010. the failure is fast and the sprinter goes down to 10 to 40 mph which is very dangerous! chrysler has replaced the resonator both times but obviousley it will fail again!

 Resonator failure on a 2006 dodge sprinter (winnebago view). when the resonator breaks, it poses a significant danger of an accident occurring due to the sudden and complete loss of engine power. this sudden rapid deceleration without any warning sign of any kind causes a serious and unacceptable safety hazard not only to us but also to any other person on the road. it has broken down on may 17, 2007, may 27, 2009 and august 17, 2010. repair was made by replacing the resonator.

 Tl*the contact owns a 2006 dodge sprinter. the contact stated that there was a fuel leak in the fuel filter. the failure caused diesel fuel to leak onto the engine and the ground. the dealer attempted to repair the vehicle, but was unsuccessful. the contact stated that if the fuel filter were changed with o-rings supplied with the filter, the failure would still occur. the water sensor was changed with o-rings, which were slightly different. the contact stated that without this sensor, any o-rings would not be sufficient enough to remedy the failure. the failure mileage was 36,000. updated 06/02/08 *bf the consumer stated dodge must know about the defect because the sensor comes with a slightly tighter o-ring that stops the leak. updated 06/02/08 *tr

 I own a 2006 dodge sprinter (it's actually a winnebago view motor home mounted on the dodge sprinter (mercedes sprinter) chassis. the sprinter has a plastic part known as a turbo resonator to dampen the whine of the turbocharger. this part has failed three times in a little over 20,000 miles. i'm now parked and waiting for a replacement part so that i can continue driving home from a vacation. i've decided to try to replace the part myself, rather than drive with limited power and speed to a dodge sprinter dealer about 100 miles away. not all dodge dealers service sprinters. the part has always been replaced under warranty. but to my knowledge dodge and mercedes have not corrected the weakness in this part. it fails unpredictably. when this happens, there's an immediate loss of power and speed. this would be extremely dangerous on an interstate highway. leaving jekyll island, ga., on monday, i had to climb a steep grade to cross a bridge. i could only drive 30 mph. on flat highway, i could only run 50 to 60 mph on a highway with a posted speed of 65. from everything i read on sprinter forums, this is a common problem that has been going on for years. please insist that dodge and mercedes correct this problem before lives are lost. frankly, the problem is so commonly known among sprinter owners, i'm surprised there already hasn't been a recall. the incident date is only the latest saga. i'm guessing that i've had other failures at about 10,000 miles, 15,000 miles and now about 23,000 miles. *tr
