Hi guys, I, desperately, need some help.
A few days ago a noticed a transmission leak in my c240 elegance, 2005, 6 cylinder merc.
I checked a couple of posts to go ahead and change the adapter plug with o-rings transmission cable that was leaking. I also decided to change the oil filter and the pan gasket. It seemed like an easy task.
However I later found that I couldnt check the apropriate oil level in the gearbox because there is no dipstick. Nor can I get one in my country, Peru. So I measured what came out from the pan and filter, 2 1/2 quartz aprox, and added 1/8 additional of OEM FEBI oil.
After finishing I started the car and let it warm up to operating temp. Then with brakes on Istarted moving the stick through the gears for a couple of minutes. I felt it was not engaging as smooth as before. I took it for a very slow ride and inmediately noticed that revs went up and no gear change. I stoped the car and when I tried to restart it wouldnt. Just one short crank. Also while driving it I couldnt switch gears moving the stick sideways nor pressing the C/S button worked.

Can Anybody help me? Please.

Too much or too little transmission oil can damage transmission. Do NOT guess transmission oil level. Best to get dipstick,.... ebay,.... search for "Mercedes 722.6 dipstick"

If you go over to the 210 forum there is a 722.6xxx FAQ thread in the help stickies. It will tell you lots about your transmission.

There is also a picture of the dipstick tool with measurements so you can make one.

Fluid level is critical in these transmissions. Once you get the level correct -- and assuming you are using the correct fluid -- you may have to find a shop and have codes cleared from the transmission module.

Good luck.
