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.

My transmission leaks what should i replace


There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

My side rearview mirror was broken by someone or something running into my mirror and I have a oil leak thats in the undercarriage. approximately how much is this going to cost to get it fixed?


look on ebay for mirrors replacement or junk yard, it will save you allot and you can do it yourself just by popping the mirror cover off on the opposite side of the door to access the bolts that hold the side mirrors on. 10 minute job. the mirrrors should cost you 25-50 bucks depending on condition of it. if the mirrors is diffrent color, it will need to be repainted to match the car, 50-100 buck depending on the shop, check macos, they are cheap or call around and shop and get couple estimate wont hurt. Lots of car dealers use those portable/mobile touch up guys, the dealers used them to fix and touch up all of their cars, you might want to stop by some dealership and ask one of the used car managers ask him/her who they use and phone number, those portable/mobile touch up guys does very good job, cheap and fast. oil leak under the car, can be transmission leaks or you rear main seal, common to high miles cars to leak from the rear main seal which they have to remove the tranny from the motor to get to it, the parts is cheap but the labors will get you. you probably looking if the rear main seal, 500- 900 bucks depending on the shop. you can drive on the leaks as long you keep the tranny fluid monitor making sure the fluid does not go empty in the transmission.

Transmission fluid leaking


Bars leak is ok, but if it is a seal, you'll need to drop the tranny pan and replace it. I don't know about Mercedes, but usually you have to remove the exaust pipes to take the pan off.
