RE: Factory Approved Service Products - ATF
I disagree...are you using OEM (MB) motor oil, tires, light bulbs...the list goes on.
Many OEM lubes are relabeled comercial products, and sometimes using an older formula. I want a good product and if I can save a few $$ way not.
Oh, I didn't use OEM spark plugs for $12 each, I installed Bosch Plat 2s at $4 each, and it's a better plug.
Darkmann, Good point on mixing. I hadn't thought of that. I don't know if mine has a drain plug on the torque converter or not.
I guess this is a moot point since I wasn't aware of the footnote saying MB fluid only. It's hard to get a straight answer since it changes depending on the book you look at.
Thanks. I plan to service the trans when I do the next A service.
