The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

SOURCE: what transmission fluid can I use in my 1993 Mercedes Benz 190E

AF3 onepx.gif DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF
Mercedes-Benz: Use only manufacturer approved fluid

Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

SOURCE: 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.

Drive on 1998 mercedes e240 will not engage after 3 - 5 minutes idle

sounds like the fluid level is low or filter needs to be change, either of them will cause the transmission to slip, as the fluid warms up it expands and becomes less dense witch is why you notice it more when cold, but will continue to get worse and eventually ruin the trans.

For a 1998 Mercedes SLK Automatic when engine warms the transmission won't go in reverse

Could be mechanical, fluid or electronic problem.

Fault will be indentified with a diagnostic scanner. Check for shop with a Star or Launch scanner.
If they don't understand your away !

Being as it happens warm, I would think it is a bad forward clutch drum seal allowing fluid pressure to drop below operating pressure. If so, trans' will need repair.

Check here for shop in your area ....

...........or see your friendly Mercedes dealership service department.

My Friend has a 98 C 280. She started experiencing Transmission SLippage when going up Hill. When trying to Check Transmission Fluid I discovered there was no Dip Stick. Just some plastic cap which didn"t...

Only authorised Mercedes Benz dealers have the dip stick for your car (and you can't buy them anywhere!). So you would HAVE to go to a Mercedes dealer (and ofcourse pay an "arm & a leg" to have them check it out).
In any case, the transmission fluid in your car doesn't get replaced... ever! (yes I was shocked too) but apparently so. The fluid goes in one time and that's it... unless ofcourse you have a replacement transmission then it gets emptied and refilled.

Mercedes 1998 W210 E240 Auto Gear Selection Problem when cold

Have you checked the transmission fluid if it is low then the transmission will not have enough pressure on your incline, this could also explain your shift feel changing, it could be time for a transmission service, approx €150.00 inc filter and fluid change with a fluid changer not just by draining the pan. wher are you we may know someone in your area.
