Hi
An Original Dipstick from MB is not expensive i just board one and it cost 34$ Australian,why tamper with something so little but yet so verry important,if u add to much oil i heard that it could damage the Engine ( dont know how but i was reading it somewhere ) you find to much oil when you start the Car ,it takes longer to start as the Sparkplugs r wet , add to little Oil and you see the Oil Gauge on at high Speeds as there is not inaf Oil in the Engine , go figure ,buy a new one for peace of mind .
If it helps u out look at the Pic's the 1st 1 is from where i measured it , the Point where it stops when u insert it , the 2nd one is how long it is and the points u need ,measurements ,keep in mind this is from an V8 S500 119 Engine,maybe they r the same for your model ,u just need an S320 owner now to confirm this or check your exsisting one if u have it.
Ciao

Here, have a supplementary Pic of the Dipstick with the Oil showing and the colour of it as well , to get the oil like this u need to change it several times ,flush / flush and flush again once u done that u will see it wont get as black anymore after even several 1000s of Km's ,i think i do an oilchange now the colour is a bit dark .

You do not state which automatic this is for, but I guess for the 722.6 (96->)
That service dipstick is universal, so overall length will be of no use, but here
are images and measurements of the end of it;
PeachPartsWiki: 722.6 Transmission Fluid and Filter Change
or for link to purchase;
Trans O-Ring Repair

Thanks "syljua" you saved me , when i replied i concentrated more on the Dipstick totally ignoring the word Transmission,that Dipstick is completely different then the one in the V8 Models ,so mine is no use here .
Thanks again .
Ciao:thumbsup:

You can also search the forum, there are lots of pics of the actual dipstick TOOL with a measuring stick next to it. Note that there are TWO ranges on the tool, one for 25C and one for 80C.

You can also buy a great one on ebay for like $25, looks just like the one the MB tech has hanging on his wall.

As noted, overall length is irrelevant, this is a tool you use and then remove, replacing the cap and the locking pin. The tool bottoms in the pan, then is removed to check the level.

Last, OP, please click the user cp link and complete your BW profile re: vehicle and location as that is often useful information, and sending you info about us sellers doesn't help if you aren't here. ;)

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

If it is any help to anyone, I have a photograph of the MB dipstick for the 722.6 gearbox, along with a diagram and measurements for the "business end". Contact me and I'll gladly send them to you.

Hi, I jus bought mine from 1998 s320, and I found transmission oil in the coolant, but I wanted to check transmission oil, so if I found coolant in it than it is sure that something I'd wrong with tran. Oil collar. Well I didn't have dipstick handy so I used wire hanger. So far it helps me to see clean transmission oil. But I still like to know what is the measurement of this tool?
