Hey, Strainger. Please take a minute to click the User CP link and complete your BW profile re: vehicle and location as that is often useful information.

I would chime in with the service noted above, except that while they have the pan off have them replace the pressure regulator spring noted in this thread, as that is probably the root cause of your problem:

Have the adapter/connector replaced during the service as well because that is a known source of leaks, the connector and it's replacement are discussed here:

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Thank you guys anyway
But till now no one answered my qustion
Is it recommended to install manual gear if it's available ?

Thank you again
If you mean a manual transmission swap, I don't think one was fitted to the W210 AMG models. My guess is you don't have a serious trans problem, tend to the items I noted in my earlier post, that's a few hundred bucks (depending on where you are, PLEASE complete your BW profile!) and you should be fine. Re-engineering the car to use a manual transmission would cost you more than a replacement automatic even if yours was shot.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
