Level is a dipstick at back of engine and the knob has to have the top flicked backed to enable it to be pulled out,check in reverse with engine running.

Car won't start when cold . . . i need to use starter fluid to start it . . . any suggetions?

1. Do not use starter fluid on a glow plug diesel engine. (explosive)
2. Most likely 1 or more of your glow plugs is out. They are not too expensive and are fairly easy to change. Facing the engine, look on the right side. There is a set of "plugs" with hoses, and a set of "plugs" with wires. You want to change the set of plugs with wires.

My M.B. 240D will not start unless I add starting fluid/

Sounds to me like you either have bad/weak glow plugs or low compression in your cylinders. Continuing to put starting fluid in your diesel will ultimately cause much more serious problems. Starting fluid is never recommended for use on a diesel.

What transmission fluid can I use in my 1993 Mercedes Benz 190E

AF3 onepx.gif DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF
Mercedes-Benz: Use only manufacturer approved fluid


Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.
