I checked the transmission and it is real low on fluid @ around 80 degrees. I don't see any fluild on the Trans dip stick. It does have markings by temp.

The recommended fluid is Dexron-IIE and is checked with engine idling.
If topping up the fluid does not help, you most probably needs a rebuild or replacement.

Thanks for the advice, and the recommended type fluid. I had bought some trans fluid last night, and by reading all the labels, Mercedes was not included.

The recommended grade or equivalent is good enough. For pre y2k models, transmission fluids were mostly not make specific and since then almost all manufacturers have come up with their own blending.

I warmed up the car, then added the transmisson fluld and it still only drives in only reverse. Now I know why the floor shifter was disassembled. I replaced it, to give it the test.

Did you try all forward gears?
October, 8, 2012 AT 12:06 AM
Yes, I tried all forward gears. No noise or anything happens at all.
