In order to check the fluid in the transmission you need the Mercedes Benz dip stick. It's a special tool needed for all the 722.6 transmissions. Best thing is probably to just stop by a Mercedes Independent shop where they can check it real quick. It uses a synthetic based fluid. I always go with the factory fluid.
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.
No, absolutely not. Check the transmission fluid level with the transmission dip stick. The oil level dip stick may not be the same length and the markings are not the same. Overfilling a transmission may cause damage. Do not have one then you need to get one. What has happened have you lost it?
You have to check the fluid from the bottom on the back side of the
transmission with a special tool. So if you don't have a way of getting
under the car or have a special tool to do it with then you won't be
able to. You also have to fill the fluid using this same hole.
I am not sure if I remember or not , but if you were standing by the pass side tire lean over back of engine there should be 2 dip sticks the oil then right next to it but lower is the trans . you might have to reach your hand behind the pass side cyl head / intake and feel for it. and most mercedes do not come with dip sticks they have special caps on them that actualy break when removing . the dealer ships or mercedes service shops have the dip stick and new cap. so yours most likely will just have this cap not dip stick . I cant remember any late model that came with a dip stick . mercedes only wants certified techs even checking it.
