1967 250SE AT questions

Hello,
I am working on my '67250SE sedan with automatic transmission and wondering what is the reccomended fluid for this car?

I am getting rough shifts and slipping(mainly 1st to second), also harsh downshifts, I am guessing I need to fill, or change fluid. I have no idea about service intervals on this car as it is new, though the mainual specifies a fluid change every 12k. Is this also mean that the hypoid gears(rear end) need to be serviced? What kind of fluid is reccomended for this? All the old brands in the spec are not brands I am familiar with now.

Can anyone tell me a FAQ Web site or a good repair manual to buy(name, publisher) for the car in question? Hopefully it is somewhere I can consult for fuel injection questions as well, as I don't have carburators(seems like that's a good thing...).

Any basics are welcome as I am new to this car, getting passionate about it, but come from the world of Swedish cars and don't know about the Web sites or FAQ areas which might publish relevant information pertaining to my 250SE. I am big on doing all the work myself though!

RE: 1967 250SE AT questions

[:(] I am quite surprised to post a tech question and see it get no replies, while some kid posting about SHO fords, buying his 1st car, and other random banter gets 54 replies. I thought this list would be a useful source of information in order for me to lovingly maintain my vintage benz. apparently that is not the case. Its a bummer.

Dexeron III is recommended.

If it's not correctected after fill, you may have a sick transmission - uncommon but it happens.

People try and work on these complex transmissions (generic transmission shops) and they screw it up - who knows what happened to the car in the past.

Keep an eye for any transmission leakage and don't over fill - consider a good transmission addative - Lucas.

Good luck

[8)] Thanks for the responses, I added Dexron III to the trans and shifts are smooth and no slipping. I will try the Lucas products, I have used their stuff before and with great results!

Now on to the radio, I am going to pull the old AM radio and try in get in a stereo. I will post about that as well in another thread!
