My 160,000 mile SL55 AMG seems to need some trans service. Thinking that a oil change may be a good Idea. MB says sealed for life.....but what's life. it's a easy diy job and I got the gasket & filter & oil to do it,

Thoughts ?

I doubt the torque converter will have a drain, so you'll only get about 4 out of 9 quarts from the pan. I think that's OK, though. Just changing about half the fluid and the filter is better than nothing. You could repeat this another two or three times over the coming months and get about 90% of it changed.
