I am glad we found out about the blue ATF.

I only see cars that are about 2009 or older.

Hello All,

Yes, I think I'm on track now. I have about 6 hours of internet time, researching the correct MB Spec. ATF & Re-Verifying the Servicing Procedure of the -- 7 G Tronic Plus / NAG II + Transmission. I was correct with everything I did earlier... except -- " not having the engine (see below in thread) running in park. "

Also, the ATF (1.2 qts.) that I pumped in was/ or may not be correct with the MB No# A 001 989 22 03 that's marked on the bottle of Pentosin ATF that was bought thru Advance Auto.

I have the car parked until the correct ATF oil arrives here for the weekend. I ordered in -- Fuchs Titian ATF, the price was -- $ 148.50 for 12 quarts (from IDPartsDiesel) with $ 4.95 shipping. The oil came in 4 liter jugs & a better price overall to buy (3) 4 L. jugs then add (2) bottles @ a higher 1 qt. price.

Installed in:

2013 SLK 250, 7-G Tronic Plus

The Correct Spec. is: 136.15 (Blue) MB Part No# 001 989 78 03 09, I verified this information with two different MB Dealers per my VIN, so I should be 100% correct.

Thanks from Everyone that Helped me.

This is what I love about Benzworld, there is so much knowledge coming in all the time. I do not work for a dealer and finding new info is always important.

My storemen and young Techs do have friends in the dealers and many have worked in the dealers so they get lots of new info but at the end of the day if they get it wrong then it lands on my desk.

Yes Sir... You're Spot On with your comment about Benz World. No one offered to helped me on the other MB forums, only Benz World helped me. I'm a high tech.guy on aircraft but not knowable about maintenance procedures' on MB cars.

I missed a step when re-serving my trans. on my 2013 SLK 250. I did not know what I did wrong. Benz World helped me right-away. This timely help speaks... Volumes to me. Good People here at Benz World & not one demeaning comment from anyone.

A Hearted Thanks to All the Folks that Helped me here.
