OK, here's another "really dumb question"... my 1984 300SD has some type of a leak (rear main seal?) that makes it necessary for me to check the ATF level frequently.

The last time I (attempted to) check, I had streaking of ATF on the dipstick, but no point where the dipstick was totally covered, if this makes any sense. How much ATF corresponds to the distance between the "full" and "Min" lines? Once when my SD was in for an oil change, they charged me for 2 quarts of ATF!!

This is driving me nuts, because I want to add Mobil 1 synthetic ATF; in fact I bought enough to do a full ATF change because I found it locally on sale for $4.99 a quart... any help appreciated. Thanks,
