The transmission seal or gasket..leaking..transmission fluid

This answer was rated:

I have a 1997 C 280. The transmission seal or gasket appears to be leaking. Can I add transmission fluid to the system? If so where is the fluid added. The manul says it is a closed system and can only be accessed by a mechanic.

Hi, Oil can only be added via the dip stick tube at the rear of the engine. The only problem is that you cannot recheck the level as you will need a workshop dip stick as the car has an empty tube.
