Hi I am having trouble with the auto in my 1997 E320 removed the filter from the auto and found that the filter paper material had fall into pieces, my car only has 1st and reverse now like in limp home but no indication on the dash, will I get fault light on the dash or do I need to hook diagnostic tool up to it.
regards G2

Is this original 18 years old filter that failed?
It is more of a strainer and not design to filter small particles.
Anyway, to read transmission codes you need Star-level scanner.
Suppose those scanners that just dropped from $800 to $250 can read those codes, but it is hard to figure out unless you find someone who had it actually used.
Good luck
