What fluid did you want to check? oil, coolant, transmission, brake? let me know and maybe i can help. the leak you currently see what color is the fluid? black or dark brown probably enigne oil. red or dark brown probably some kind of hydraulic fluid--trans or brake, yellow, green or blue with a sickly sweet smell is probably coolant. i haven't worked on a c230 but as far as i know all transmissions have a dipstick where you can check the level. check your owner's manual. make sure the car is warmed up such as after a short drive to properly circulate and check the trans fluid. some cars also require the transmission to be placed in a specific position ie neutral when being checked. again check your owners manual.

to the guy that was critical about your question, i hope he stays as dumb and ignorant about his/her car as he seems as with his/her attitude--just keep bringing it to servcie, that way i can keep making a lot of money out of you. i actually prefer an owner who knows a litlte some thing about their car and how it works--it makes the job easier in communicating to me what may be wrong and thus i can save them time and money. we both win. just don't tell me what you think it is--just tell me the symptoms are, as a professional it's my job to figure it out from there. hope this helps.

    your out of luck, most cars with auto transmissions do have a dip stick but not the c230's. I have one and it's at the dealer right now. they claimed tranny oil level checks are not necessary but are now telling me I need to spend $8000 on a new transmission and radiator because water got into the tranny through the radiator. piece of junk would never buy a merc again. this one only has 115 k miles on it now.

    I took my 1998 c230 to the dealer for check engine light in 2009. The dealer gave me an estimate of $8000.00 to fix the problem. They told me the car worth $5000.00. I refused to get repaired and paid their estimate fee of $600. The dealer was so greedy. I got most of the repairs done and paid not more than $1000.00.For the transmission leak(contamination on the dealer's test) I could add Transmission lightning fluid for $20 and its good now. Motor mounts replacement was $700 at the Dealer, Thanks to YouTube and other Internet vendors, I was able to order a floor jack and jackstands All Aluminum for $50.And the motor mounts cost was $120. I change the both brake pads Front and Rear for less than $80 Where as any Mechanic wanted $500 for the job. I happened to change the Engine valve cover gasket for $50. Where is the comparison for $300 at the shop. I had this repairs done for two years and still going good, that means Some thing is right.I am saving money by staying away from mechanics and dealers. Have a nice day Pompano Mercedes Benz Dealer.

2005 ford taros hard shift into 3rd gear.Transmission light is on. I Disconnected battery to reset the computer. That worked only once for a very short time.


Hi. Before you do anything, check the transmission fluid level with engine running and in park. If the fluid is at the right level, there are 2 levels, a cold and a hot level. If the fluid is low then simply add fluid to correct level and check for leaks in hoses,transmission pan, external oil cooler if installed and axel seals. Normally fluid levels will not go down except if there is a leak somewhere. If the fluid smells burned, then you have most likely will need an overhaul as the tranmission has overheated due to high loads (pulling a trailer in hot temps, or simply because of age and the resultant excessive slippage of the friction plates.
However if the fluid level is good and fluid smells ok then gave the computer code read. Your problem could simply be a loose or corroded wire to or from the transmission causing erratic shift symtoms.
Good luck,
Gary

Yes, i have a c230 mercedes kompressor.


not necessarily
when diesels knock and diesel at low rpms it generally indicates a dribbling or leaking injector/s
have an accredited diesel repair shop check it out
If it has some miles on it and the injectors have never been done then the injectors are a fair bet

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.

How do i check transmission fluid and add what type in a 2002 c-230 coupe kompressor. and location of such?


Checking the fluid requires a special tool. I recommend taking it to the dealership. Only use MB brand fluid in your car.
The check point is sealed to avoid contamination, and there is no dipstick. You can buy/borrow the tool and do it yourself, but it's very easy to get dust/dirt/particles in the transmission and this will destroy it quite quickly.

Where is the dip stick to check the transmision fluid how do you check the transmision fluid?


2005 Chevy Malibu has a sealed transmission with no dipstick, so you can't check the transmission fluid level without getting underneath the car and looking at the transmission itself.

Locate the transmission. Look for a small plug with a hex bolt on the passenger side of the transmission, adjacent to the passenger side front tire.

Start the engine and let it warm up to regular operating temperature. Remove the hex bolt from the plug hole in the side of the transmission with a wrench or socket. If transmission fluid flows freely from the hole, the fluid level is correct. If it barely drips, or no fluid comes out, the transmission fluid level is low.

Mercedes-Benz Transmission Fluid question


the transmission on your MB is sealed with no way to check the trans fluid level,(no dipstick provided for) that is why the report says "sealed". MB did this to stop customers from overfilling there transmissions, which can cause severe damage if not done properly at the correct fluid temp, this requires special test scan tools.

2005 Mercedes C230 w/ Kompressor


it seems your have a power steering problem. it could be a simple fix by checking the power steering resevoir for proper fluid level. it also be that the steering pump is failing. the most troublesome is that the rack and pinion unit is the fault. first thing to check is the fluid resevoir if it's low fill to proper level and start the vehicle. turn the steering wheel all the way left and hold till you hear a light squeal, then turn to the right and hold till you hear the squeal. do this several times. this is to make sure there is no air in the system. you should be able to turn the wheel and it should be smooth with no hesitation. if this doesn't solve the problem, then you must take it to a shop to have the pump replaced if it is the fault or the rack and pinion............please rate the solution...thanks
