2005 SLK55 AMG

Discussion Starter · #1 ·
So i recently got a SLK 55 amg 05 90k miles anyway… i rebuilt the whole top end my self i pulled apart the forbidden unserviceable manifold & also took apart my valve covers etc. if anyone wants info or pictures. I also had a recent problem where i dropped a trans cooling line that connects to the radiator & it poured half the fluid out. I drained everything but now i’m having a problem of it smoking out the tail pipe & last time when i drained my oil i saw trans fluid in the rear drain pan which is pretty weird to me as i never seen this happen.
