Transmission Fluid

Hey guys,

I'm gathering supplies to perform a transmission fluid change on my 99 SLK230 auto transmission. The last thing I need to purchase now is the fluid itself. I see a lot information on which fluids are compatible so I'm a bit nervous on what to buy.
  • What fluid(s) is compatible with my car?
  • Where is the cheapest place to buy said fluid?

Much thanks in advance.

I ended up going with: Fuchs ATF 4134 MB Spec 236.14 & 236.12 ATF 134

I should be okay with this, right?
