I've got an '84 500SEL Euro that I unfortunately don't have all of the service records for. The other day I noticed what looked like a couple of drops getting ready to fall to the pavement from the tranny bell housing. At first I thought maybe it was oil from my lower oil pan, because I need to replace my oil pan gasket, I had just driven the car and I thought perhaps some oil had blown back towards the tranny while in transit. Anyways, I reached under and took the drops with my fingers. As I examined it, it didn't smell like oil, or look like oil. It was a very light yellow.
My question is-Does MB use a non-pink transmission fluid? I could have sworn that I once overheard or read somewhere that this is the case.
