Let me understand your advice, if the transmission or differential oil were below normal, I will see a malfunction light indicated at startup?

I see no such malfunction indication, is there a log readout that the dealer can access which will say for sure? I believe the fluid fill plug is sealed or at least marked, can it easily be checked or is this a dealer only service?

This heating problem seem unusual, the shift knob shaft is very hot to the touch. Any ideas if this is normal on the CLK? The ML does not feel hot, warm sometimes but not hot like the Cab.
