Question

Visitor, Youngsville, LA, February 14, 2011, 09:14

Hello,

My car is having trouble shifting down from 2nd to 1st gear. Now it was low on steering fluid twice due to below freex=zing temp. I filled it back up and now there is a slow greenish fluid leak. Im afraid to drive it! Help please.

    sounds like you may have two different issues. on the trans issue, you can't check the fluid level because there is no dipstick. trans service is due every 39000
    miles with new fluid, pan gasket and filter. suggest a good local MB shop and they will usually have the correct
    fluid for this vehicle. same with the p/s fluid; it is MB gear oil and not regular p/s fluid that the Parts Goober store sells. they can identify your p/s leak.
