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.

It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.

hi this is showing fuel trim bank 1 malfunction, this could be caused by the following things, intake leak, AIR system, fuel pressure/pump, injector/s EVAP canister purge valve, or HO2S ( air fuel mix incorrect) if it starts and runs fine, i do not think it will be fuel pump, or the injectors as this would make it run rough or even not start at all, if it was an intake leak, you would be suffering from high rev's when you start the car and would take a long time for the rev's to come down, so really, that just leaves the HO2S (sensor/s) these are located one on the exhaust manifold ( from engine follow exhaust manifold you will come to a things sticking out with some wires on) this is HO2S sensor bank 1, or if you look under the car on the exhaust, just past the catalytic converter you will see the same thing, this is HO2S sensor bank 2, it may be either of these, but i possibly would go for the first one, EVAP..it could be, if you have an air leak on it, the EVAP can be found under the hood/bonnet, at the front on the right hand side as you look into the engine/motor bay just in front of the screen was bottle...hope this helps
