You have to buy a dipstick as none came with the car. When you car was new the "sealed system" was the policy. Most W210 owners now at least refresh the fluid and change the filter about every 50,000 miles. Quite a few owners who have never done any service have experience failures.
There have been a couple of suggestions but the least expensive seems to be $25 somewhere on eBay Motors. You can also buy them from any dealer for a bit more and Benzworld member ohlord sells them too. ATF level is pretty critical on these 722.6 transmissions so you'd better have a look soon.
If it turns out you need to replace the transmission, I think you can do it for less money by buying an already rebuilt one and if I remember correctly some of those have more than a 12 month warranty.
