The picture you attached doesn't look like anything on my car.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is there a different style of torque converter on some C240's?
Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.
Hi, perhaps I can help. There is no drain on the torque converter on your Mercedes. You will only be able to drain approximately 4 quarts of fluid from the transmission when removing the pan.Let me know if you have any questions.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thanks. I the bottom of the pan was a 1 5/8 x 2 1/8 metal grate. Where does it go?

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This little grate has part # XXXXX 220 271 00 98 stamped on it.
Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I put the cover back and poured in the amount of transmission fluid I took out and started the car, put it in gear and the transmission doesn't engage. What could it be?
Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.
Make sure that you didn't pour the fluid into the engine oil dipstick tube by mistake. The engine dipstick tube and transmission tube are right next to each other. The transmission tube sits down lower and to the inside of the engine dipstick tube. If you poured the fluid into the motor you are going to need to drain the engine oil and refill it also.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I only have one dipstick tube near the firewall. It has a small cap covering it. It appears the tube funnels to the transmission.
Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.
Click here for a picture of the transmission filler tube. It's down lower than the engine oil tube. You can see the engine oil tube in the picture.
