so, how effective is flushing through the lines at clearing the old fluid from the torque converter?
Works very well for me. Flushed until it came out red. As I recall, took about 15 quarts (At $3/Qt. it's not a problem.). Check some of the postings, either here or MB-world. Several have posted info on it. I disconnected one of the cooler lines, and clamped a clear poly hose draining into a gallon jug marked a 1 Qt., and, with a friend at the wheel, and I under the car, pumped out a Qt. at a time, added a Qt. at a time, until it comes out red. That was about 50K+ miles ago. I bought my 430CLk Cabriolet new, and she still runs nicely and still looks classy. Now note, Maxlife is spec for the W208 trans (722623, 5 speed). I believe the W210 is different.
