Next time you change tranny fluid, check out the MB maint. manual first. You rotate the engine clock-wise as viewed from the front of the car by way of a 27mm crankshaft nut. I'm not sure if you tore something up using a pry bar in/around the fly wheel?
Did you drain the main pan and the torque converter? How much fluid was put back into the system? Still wondering about what happened around your flywheel when you were turning the engine in search of the torque converter drain plug?
