1967 250SE AT questions
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!
