There isn't any. Unless you have obvious leakage, the tranny oil is good for 100,000 miles.

If you want, you can buy the "service" dip stick the dealers use from various sites on the internent, and replace the plastic dip tube cap with that.

Better change it at 40K-50K

Here's the procedure for checking your fluid and for changing it. If you do change it yourself, the newer models do not have a drain plug in the torque converter. You'll only be able to get about 4 quarts out of the tranny with a filter change if you can't drain the converter. If you have an older model and can drain it, you will get about 8 quarts out of it. I hope that you can read these screen shots.

I changed mine at 42,000 miles. It was dark compared to the new Mercedes fluid. It needed changing.

You can get what you need at the websites others referenced. I went to thepartsbin.com to get my Mercedes fluid and parts.

My rear differential fluid looked really dark. It needed changing. I used Mobil 1 75w90 gear oil from a local parts store.
