If you take it to mercedes they will charge £3500 and will replace the gearbox, Alternatively you can change the shifter valve £25, new sump and filter as they have changed, fit a magnet inside the gearbox as the early A didnt have one. Fresh oil and see how you get on, the control unit for the gearbox sits inside the gearbox £1000 roughly for a new one but it has to come from mercedes in germany where it is coded to your chassis number, 2nd control units are not an option!!!!!!!

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.

for the 220cdi,it is a 611.961 motor, you have to refill 6.5 liter,included the olilfilter.Whenyou have refill,and after the motor has running,you can check the oil-level in the board-computer.

hello I'am a mercedes tech. when I service a deisel engine I never put syn. oil in a diesel because it is thin and I don't care what you do all disels leak oil because they have very high compression. I use 20/50 valvoline. As far as your fuel inj, cleaner we use techroline from chevron and when I service the fuel filters I add a filter full of transmission fluid( atf dex. merc.) it helps unclog and properly lube your mechanical fuel inj. I fill the big metal canister 1/2 to 3/4 full of a.t.f.. Also check your inj. return hoses they often leak. they are the black hoses running from the fuel rack to the injecter. replace if oily. If you have miner seap of engine oil do not worry too much about it that is why your car has that huge incapsulation panal underneath the engine and trans. If you have a good leak I would pressure wash the engine and inspect it for leaks. If you can,t find the leak add oil dye and inspect with blacklight. Just moniter the oil level. There is a spec. as far acceptable amount of oil consumption. I believe it is something like 1 quart for every 1,000 miles. You can take it to m.b. shop and have it set up for an oil consumption test if you are not sure. I hope this might help you with your questions.
