Here you go:Just a quick one here guys........... I can't find anything on when or not the auto gearbox / transmission fluid and filter should be changed.
My R170's 16 years old with 83.000 and I can only assume its original
Well , good point , mines a very similar age and mileage, so I think I will get it done.......... a point worth noteing is the gearbox management module keeps the engine revs up and changes up later (perhaps giving that feeling of "stikyness") until everythings warmed up to get the cats upto temp faster.I read somewhere that it should be done at 50000 miles ideally. My box was getting sticky, particularly on a cold morning before she had warmed up, and it has been much better since I had the oil and filters changed on my 14yr old 80000mile 230slk.
