Does the car have a transmission dipstick? Look on the passenger side of the engine compartment towards the firewall to find the dipstick tube. If it has a dipstick there will be a square top on it with a locking mechanism. Run car to normal operating temerature, unlock the dipstick pull it out wipe it off push it back in and pull it back out then look to see if the fluid is between the marks. If not just add fluid through the tube.  If you don't have a dipstick there will be a smaller cap with  red plastic lock on it. You will have to break the red lock to get the cap off. There is a special tool from Mercedes to check the level on these non dipstick units. If you think it is low then add 1 quart and road test for proper operation and shifting.

My mercedes 2000 E430 transmission was going into neutral by itsself after stop sometime.


With MBZ transmissions, you really need the trouble codes before you replace anything ; I would have the fluid and filter checked and replaced first. Without seeing your car, if a basic service does not solve the problem -- problem could be attributed to a number of parts; including but not limited to the conductor plate / shifter (best case scenario) to a wide range of failing internal transmission parts

How do I check transmission fluid in 1999 Mercedes C230?


The 99 C230 has a "dipstick tube" located in rear of engine close to the firewall accessible from passanger's side under hood. This tube should be covered by a black plastic top. Remove the top and insert a long piece of thin plastic-covered cable (very thin, like 1-2 mm) -- pull this cable back out as soon as you start to feel resistance. It should be wet with red transmission fluid. If it is brown, the fluid should be changed by a "QUALIFIED" technician who will use the correct fluid & procedures

Here is the way to find out pull your spark plug put out and bring each cylinder tdc and put 50 psi air in that cylinder remove radiator cap and check for bubbles do this to all cylinders,if no bubbles I would be checking to see if that engine has a oil cooler that could leak oil into your coolant,some mercededs had oil cooler,
