You might have seen my post when I first was looking at this car. It
has been great so far. I have been running it on a 50/50 blend of
biodiesel and dinodiesel. No problems with power or mileage. Idles
smooth and steady. I love it.
Anyway, I do have a question. When the car is cold and has not been
driven for a night or so, the transmission flares/slips from 2nd to
3rd gear. When the car is warmed up and I have been driving it, it no
longer occurs. Can anyone suggest what may be happening? Also, I have
done some research into the fluid levels and how to check them. If I
find that it is low, where do I add the fluid? I have been told that
you add it where the dipstick is. True? Lastly, what type of fluid
should I use to add? Can I use the Lucas brand tranny additive to top
Last question, I do not have a manual for the car so I have no idea
what the specs are. I would like to change the oil, know how much fuel
it holds, etc.. Do you all know where I might find one?
Thanks in advance. I know these are basic questions, but this is my
first Benz Diesel and I want to make sure it lasts.
