    Please "HELP" My 2005 311cdi sprinter wont select any gear it just stays in Neutral. The transmission I think is called a sprintshift which is a manual gearbox that changes automatically by selecting gear up and down only and has a Auto option as well. I hope someone can help.
    Also I like to change it to manual from auto (sprinshift). Do I need a new ecu for manual gearbox, is it straight forward to convert it into manual
    Thanks

    I think you ll find the motor is failing. On the side of the transmission. Your vehicle has a conventional manual transmission with an electro hydraulic shifting system. It's usually the electric motor that plays up
