I have a 2003 Mercedes Benz c230 kompressor. When the transmission fluid was changed it started smoking (like enough smoke to block out the sun!). Would the wrong transmission fluid cause this???

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.

SOURCE: can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof

It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.

SOURCE: when shall I change the oil filter for my C230 Kompressor

If the plugs have never been changed at 140,000 you should change them. Spark plugs nowadays last about 100,000 miles. The fuel filter should be changed every 10-15,000 miles. Also everytime you do an oil change you should check the air filter.
