Just did the same job on my 190e. Got to the torque converter drain by using a remote starter. That way, you can lay under the car and watch the torque converter as you activate the starter in small increments. You don't have to have another person to help you turn the engine over. I believe that my job used about 6.5 quarts of fluid. You should start with 3-4 quarts first, start the engine and put the trans through all of its gears. Add the remainder of the 6 quarts, restart engine and go through gears again. The last half quart or so should be added in very small amounts with repeated monitoring of the dipstick for the correct levels. You might also consider draining the fluid in the cooler by disconnecting the lines which go to the radiator. Hope this helps, bkim
