I have a 2000 Mercedes S500 with 64K miles; is winter stored

Customer Question

I have a 2000 Mercedes S500 with 64K miles; is winter stored from November to May with a float charger. This spring upon removing the car from storage and starting it up, I noticed an alarming leakage of transmission fluid. While I have heard of this phenomenon of leakage after storage, I am concerned about the amount that leaked. Others have said that this is frequently "self-correcting" upon driving the vehicle, but how will I know when the level has reached dangerously low levels & when do I add more MB transmission fluid?

Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. If you have fluid on the ground then the fluid level needs checked. The transmission you have is very temperamental to correct fluid level. Don't listen to the forum posters. The trans should never leak no matter how long it sits. I will attach a picture of the most common parts failure. It's a small "bushing" that seals the transmission electrical connector to the transmission. Unless you don't like money I would go have the fluid level checked. It needs to be at 80 degrees Celsius and checked with the proper dipstick. Here is the link

And here is one on checking the fluid level.
