I love this forum.Although this is the first time I post on it , I have found a wealth of knowledge on here in the past . I purchased a 2002 32 about four years ago and had quite a bit of problems with it , because the car was terribly neglected when I bought it . I found the solutions to all the electrical problems on these forums . Now the transmission got coolant in because of an radiator failure and even after a new radiator was fitted and numerous flushes the transmission oil filter keep blocking up every 250 km or so . What to do now .

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from North Carolina. Whew....32's rule. On your problem...a flush only changes a portion of the transmission fluid. Do a complete fluid and filter change. I had mine done simply because it is 12 years old. Fine so far!

Hi . Thanks for your reply . I have done two complete oil changes with new filters . I have also had it at a "supposedly" specialist which charged me nearly $2000.00 for what ever he did to the car , and still I only did 361 km before the problem came back . I questioned him about it and his reply was that everything was clean and fine when the car left his workshop . Now he is out of bussiness and I sit with the same problem .I must add that the dealership in our town is not interested in the older cars .
