Warning light - transmission - 2008 Merc A170 Auto elegance - vehicle losing power - how do i check transmission oil level

For you to check the gearbox oil there are three different types of dipstick depending on the model of gearbox in them,and the gear oil has to be at running temperature to be checked.

Where do I put my transmission fluid in an automatic transmission/Automatic...

Most, if not all vehicles require the fluid in an automatic transmission, or automatic gearbox, to be added through the dipstick tube (the tube where the fluid level is checked from).
It more often than not requires the use of a small funnel. Most service station attendants are trained in this procedure.
Always use the fluid type recommended by the manufacturer, and fill to the proper level. Since the fluid is added through the dipstick tube it may take some time to get an accurate reading, due to the residue left by the new fluid.
Transmissions and Gearboxes give a more accurate reading after the vehicle is warm, or has been running/driven for at least fifteen minutes.

If this has been of any assistance, kindly rate it accordingly. Thank you.

Where do i put my transmission fiuid its low

You put it in the transmission dipstick tube which as you have seen is at the right hand end of the engine near to the battery. Use a narrow funnel or a turkey baster.

Transmission fluid

First, refer to the dip stick top or the vehicle manual to identify which type of fluid to add to your transmission.
I presume you are referring to the more popular automatic transmission for many markets.

Run the vehicle until it is warm.

Remove the gearbox oil dipstick.

Jack the vehicle up a little if it helps, as you will need a drain tray and tool. Creep under the vehicle and remove the gearbox oil drain bung. It's usually at the lowest point, in the gearbox oil pan.

Drain the oil until you have almost no drips.

If you don't wish to replace the gearbox oil filter at this point, then procede to tighten the drain bung back into the oil pan/sump using a fresh washer if needed. Once tight (don't go mad as these can strip easily) you can procede to add your new oil.

You will likely need a very thin funnel to fit into the dipstick tube as this is where the oil is added on almost all Japanese models at least. If you can't find out how much oil to add to your vehicle, then add as much as you dropped out at first, or perhaps a little less as your fresh oil is cold as opposed to the expanded, warmer oil which came out.

Once added, start the vehicle, and go through the gears with your foot on the brake.
With the engine running and in Park, check the gearbox oil level.

You can often get false readings on the dipstick until all the oil you added to the dipstick tube has run into the gearbox, so you might want to check this after half an hour or so.

Run the vehicle, do a road-test, and then return and recheck for any oil leak at the drain bung and the oil level once again.

Gearboxes are very sensitive to having incorrect oil levels, so try to keep it as accurate as possible.

Good luck!

Tranmisson is taking to long to shift out of first gear

automatic gearboxes are not something you can service yourself.
the only thing to do is check the transmission fluid level as low fluid level can cause this. there is normally a separate dipstick for this.
if the level is correct it will need to be checked by an automatic gearbox specialist.

Your transmission is sealed and has no dipstick for a level check, all models of VW and Audi are this way, this started in the late 90's, why did they do this? VW/Audi don't want owners overfilling there transmission's, if the fluid is not at 95-113 Degrees Fahrenheit then you can overfill thinking the level is low and not taking expansion into account.
